CABE Mentor Program opportunity:
- We are now launching the 2018-19 mentoring program and invite you to submit your application online to be a mentee or mentor by Nov. 28, 2018.
- Once you complete the on-line application, your CABE chapter program representative will be in contact with you.
- The program is mentee-driven. Once the match is made, the mentee is responsible for managing the mentor relationship. We recommend arranging monthly meetings with your mentor that may be in person or by phone.
- The program runs for approximately 10-12 months.
- The mentee must currently be employed with two years of work experience.
- Both mentee and mentor must be either national or local chapter members of CABE.
- The 2018-19 mentorship program is currently not being offered via the CABE Ottawa Chapter (OEA). However, mentor program events will be offered by OEA throughout the year.
Mentoring can change your understanding of our profession and what we can accomplish. To learn more about the program, please consult the guide available at this link.
The online application form for both mentees and mentors is located under the mentoring menu item under CABE/Chapters. You must be a registered user to access this form. If you are not registered, you may purchase a membership via 'CABE Store.
CABE Salary Survey 2017 - March 2018 Release
I am pleased to announce that CABE has just released its 2017 Salary Survey Report. This is the first salary survey that CABE has released since 2010.
Highlights of what we learned from the respondents to our sample include:
- The median salary for an economist working full-time in Canada was $100,000 to $125,000 annually.
- ·Reported salaries varied by industry sector, region, and experience. For example, the median entry-level salary for economists in Canada was $50,000 to $60,000.
- Half of respondents also reported receiving additional compensation, such as bonuses and stock options, with median compensation in the $10,000 to $20,000 range.
The report looks at differences in compensation by gender, visible minority status, education and job title; provides information about access to retirement, vacation and other benefits, as well as professional development supports; and details the survey methodology.
Members can access the full report for free at this link (Salary Survey )using their CABE login. Its use is exclusively for members, and is not available for circulation or reproduction.
We hope this report will aid Canadian economists in their employment paths and compensation negotiations, and help employers understand how their compensation and benefit practices compare to other organizations.
Next week, CABE will be circulating a survey to assess the professional development needs of economists working in Canada. I encourage you all to participate, so CABE can evolve to better serve your needs.
