Deadline Extended for #CreativeEarners National Salary Survey!

Canadian creative professionals now have until June 30th to fill out the CreativeEarners National Survey of Salaries and Billing Practices 


Over 2,500 Creative Directors, Marketing Managers, Account Coordinators, Designers, Developers, Writers and others from across Canada have already filled out the survey. With national support from coast to coast, the findings will help provide a comprehensive resource on the salaries and billing practices of the Canadian communication design industry.  



"CreativeEarners helps owners understand the competitive landscape, and helps designers understand their place in the larger financial ecosystem. We have referred to it for years and have pointed many designers to it.”
– Matthew Clark, Principal & Creative Director, Subplot Design Inc., Vancouver


"The RGD salary survey gives valuable insight into pure Canadian data – it helps to set benchmarks and evaluate ourselves against peers. Why would you not participate?” – Rita Sasges, Principal, Sasges Inc., Calgary


“We use CreativeEarners to decide how to pay our staff and our staff use it to see what they should be getting paid. The thing is, it only works if we participate. Take the survey, add your information and help us help ourselves. You’ll be glad you did.”
– Shawn King, President / Chief Creative Officer, Extreme Group, Halifax


"It's only 10 minutes of your time. That's it. Come on people! You owe it to the industry. Not only will this survey give you a great idea of salaries in the advertising and design field, it’ll give employers, like me, an idea of what’s fair and what’s current.” – Jenny Smith, President / Creative Director, Ray, St. John's, NL


"Je pense qu'il est essentiel pour chaque personne de bien se connaître. Il en est de même pour les professions. Ce n'est que par ce biais que nous pouvons réellement progresser." – Marc Kandalaft, President / Creative Director, Marc Kandalaft Design, Montreal
