Newly released 2017 Canadian Nonprofit Sector Salary & Benefits Report reveals current compensation trends

Compensation at nonprofits across the country continues to rise slowly for some nonprofit professionals, according to the new 2017 Canadian Nonprofit Sector Salary & Benefits Report. To better understand nonprofit compensation, we surveyed more than 1,000 participants who represented more than 14,000 individual employees from nonprofits across Canada. The results are gathered in our 2017 salary and benefits report, now available for online purchase.

The findings are helpful for both sides of the hiring equation: Hiring managers can compare their compensation offerings with other organizations of similar size, sector and location, while individuals can research salary and benefit packages by similar criteria to confidently discuss salary expectations with current and potential employers.

Here are some highlights from the 2017 edition:

Average cash compensation increased in the nonprofit sector, except for front-line and support staff, between 2013 and 2016. When increases were received, the majority were less than 3%. The most significant increase was among management/supervisory staff at a cumulative 15% since 2013. This growth will need to be monitored to determine if it is a trend or a temporary spike.
