October 23, 2019 – The national, provincial, and territorial planning institutes and associations are pleased to release the results of the first comprehensive compensation and benefits survey of Canadian professional planners.

The survey was open May 8, 2019 to June 9, 2019 and had 1,850 respondents, which represents 24% of regulated members of the Provincial and Territorial Institutes and Associations (PTIAs). 

The self-reported data included in the report provides members and the public information about pay levels and other means of compensation. This survey is not necessarily representative of the complete professional planning membership in Canada or the total population of individuals in these positions or locales. Regional reports will be available through the PTIAs (links are provided below).

An English language webinar on the national survey results will be held on October 31, 2019. Registration is free and open now. A French language webinar will be held at a future date.

Thank you to all professional planners who participated in the survey and to the following organizations, which provided financial and administrative support:
