Creative Earners National Salary Survey

To promote salary transparency in the Canadian design and communications industry, creatives working across Canada are asked to confidentially share salary and billing information to help create an accurate financial picture of our industry and understand what graphic designers and related professionals are being paid.
The more Canadian designers and related professionals who participate, the better will be our picture of our industry and how the global pandemic has impacted our community.
