Alberta Wages to be Highest in 2013

A newly released report by the Conference Board of Canada, a non-profit research organization specializing in economic trends, offers an optimistic outlook for those working in Alberta in 2013. The Conference Board of Canada’s October 24, 2012 report predicts the average salary for Alberta's non-unionized employees will increase by 3.8 per cent in 2013, above the 3 per cent average projected for the country.

The Conference Board of Canada's Compensation Planning Outlook 2013 also predicts the oil and gas industry in 2013 will have a 4.2 per cent increase in base pay, the highest average increase, followed by the natural resource sector with 3.6 per cent increase. This is good news for talented professionals in engineering, technology or skilled trades thinking of moving to Alberta.
