Creative Earners Salary Survey 2018/2019: Launching this Fall

The 2018/2019 Creative Earners Salary Survey launches this fall! Mark your calendars to help build an economic profile of the national creative industry.


The Creative Earners Survey is a joint initiative of RGD, Creative Niche and the GDC. The survey findings will provide insight into financial trends in the creative communications sector in Canada and offer a summary of the current status of communication design professionals – who they are, the services they offer, how they define their profession and where they think the industry is headed.


We are seeking participation from individuals across the country working in a wide variety of professions to contribute to this important national industry resource. For the findings to be accurate, a large sample size is needed. This is where your support comes in.


As of October 24, you can share your data (anonymously, of course!) online or in-person in the Creative Earners space at DesignThinkers Toronto (where you will receive a special giveaway for participating!). More details to come.
