Tourism Sector Compensation

If you want to attract, recruit, and retain skilled workers for peak performance in your workplace, you need to know that your total compensation package is competitive. The Canadian Tourism Sector Compensation Study provides a wealth of information on wage rates by region and industry, and some high-level observations on trends in perks and benefits.

Tourism HR Canada has been conducting compensation studies of the Canadian tourism sector for several years. A large-scale survey was conducted every two years from 2006 to 2012; it was re-launched in 2018, culminating in the comprehensive 2019 Canadian Tourism Sector Compensation report. This research was suspended during the pandemic, but given the tight labour market we are currently facing, the question of compensation is just as pressing as it has ever been.
