CNLA, in partnership with the provincial associations, is pleased to provide you with the results of the 2014 Wage Survey. The results have been organized on a webpage to help you find the information you want. Find average base hourly wage information by province, region, company size or employment. Visit www.wagesurvey.ca to access the results.
This information is instrumental to nursery stock growers; landscape operations and retail garden centres. Thank you to the numerous volunteers who have helped make this happen; thank you to the respondents who took the time to complete the survey so far and if you haven't already done so, NOW is your chance to contribute.
There is a HUGE opportunity for everyone in this industry to benefit from the Wage Survey.
There are so many reasons you should consider participating:
1. Raise the level of professionalism in the sector;
2. Benchmark wages against industry gathered data;
3. Give comparable data to make compensation decisions to attract and retain skilled employees;
4. Better wage rates to correspond with increasing levels of skills and experience;
5. Provide educators and government agencies current Labour Market Information on wages.
The Wage Survey requires some time to gather information and it is worth it. It takes time, just like what you do for a living. Everything we plant today has a purpose for tomorrow. Please encourage everyone you know in the industry to participate.
You can participate and by sending an email to: email@example.com
***Funded in part by the Government of Canada Sectoral Initiatives Program; this project was also undertaken in partnership with CNLA’s nine Provincial Associations.
