Then there's all the ways that their pay gets fuckin knocked down due to administrative errors that the member in turn gets shafted for.
Probably because those are mainly Albertan jobs. Not a lot of oil rigs in bc.

Considering the high cost of living and taxes, these numbers are ridiculous. But then again, this is BC we're talking about.

Highest paying jobs in BC wont ever be on any census list, the only other job I can think to compare them to is pharmacists if you know what I mean.

Hmm, I'm pretty happy being a mining engineer, but like someone above mentioned, the reason this salary is so inflated, is because we have to go where the work is. Its not just the engineers who make ridiculous money doing this stuff, all the trades are making bank and even the clerks make amazing money all things considered. Work is tough though, we work 12-16 hour days 7 days a week 20+ days in a row, only to get 7 days off and be back at it. I spent two 31 day shifts, with only 3 days off in between, and part of that three days was spent travelling home and back to site...

But yes this data is messed, cause there are quality inspectors and weld inspectors and such that make 300k a year. I understand averages but this list seems a little off.

Didn't read this...Guess I don't understand how the median here is calculated.
As in many fields or types of jobs or ways to earn income, the best and most established players earn the most, while the newly minted doctors/engineers/technical earners/computer programmers/lawyers/etc. earn the least.

This is especially true for lawyers and doctors where they have to earn the trust of patients/clients and build the customer base from the ground up from referrals.

So, they start out earning nothing/very little, but if they do their job well, they make a handsome amount several years after or longer.

There are no illusions of grandeur.

There are odd stories/exceptions here and there of getting right out of school and earning 6 figure salaries.

But, for the most part, 99% of wage earners start from the bottom and work their way up.

The figure for judges is right (my prof gave a similar amount in crim 135 - some of my classmates thought it was high but is putatively justified to prevent corruption). The list is definitely skewed for doctors cause my family doctor (aka non-specialist) brings in around 350k - he's mostly booked though and does not accept new patients.

I think the figure for lawyers is close though but only after expenses (secretary, rent, office supplies, possibly an office manager, etc).

Professors, that's pretty close. Almost all of my professors made between 90-125k (assistant to tenured faculty but not sessional instructors). This doesn't include book deals, etc.

Software engineers (my cousin works for a big company, that's probably close to what he makes 5 years on the job).

Secondary teachers - they make a lot according to that list given their level of qualifications and job duties. Can't say I feel sorry for them

Aspiring musicians and singers lowest paid - given the number that could be out there, this is not a shock.

For the bluebook for doctors, is that just billed amounts? Ie. They still have to pay for their expenses?

I find it very interesting how Richmond is the "poorest" city in Metro Vancouver yet has the probably one of the highest concentration of luxury vehicles

Flying instructors earning $104,000? those guys are lucky if they get anything more than $30/hr flight time


edit: Looked up my family doctor
Makes 350,000/yr, drives a beat '91 Accord and only recently upgraded to a new Accord.
Wife drives a Rav 4

mad props for modesty

I found this more interesting:

Strombo | Canadians Earned $1.1 Trillion In 2010, And Other Interesting Stats From The National Household Survey

Quote:

Canadians Earned $1.1 Trillion In 2010, And Other Interesting Stats From The National Household Survey


If you pool together all the money the approximately 27.3 million Canadians aged 15 and over earned in 2010, you arrive at the impressive total of $1.1 trillion.

That figure comes from the final batch of data from the 2011 National Household Survey, which Statistics Canada released today. The voluntary survey replaced the mandatory long-form census in 2010. Today's release focuses on two areas: the income of Canadians and the costs of home ownership and shelter. Here are five more fascinating facts and figures from the survey:

5. The One Per Cent Earn Almost A Tenth Of All Income
According to the survey, Canadians whose income is in the top one per cent earn an average of $381,300, or about 9.5 per cent of the country's total income. The cut off to be in the one-per cent club is $191,100, which is nearly seven times the national median income of $27,800.

4. The Wealthiest Canadians Are Pretty Much Who You'd Expect
High income earners are more likely to be older, male, married city dwellers with university degrees. Four-fifths of the one per cent were male, and more than half lived in Toronto, Montreal, Calgary or Vancouver.

3. Canadians Pay About A Sixth Of Their Income In Income Tax
Every April, Canadians come together to grumble about about having to reckon with the taxman. Turns out, Canadians pay about 16.4 per cent of our total income in federal and provincial income taxes, with just over a third of those over 15 not paying any income tax at all.

2. People In Nearly 7 Out Of 10 Households Own Their Dwelling
The home ownership rate has been steadily creeping upward in Canada for the last two decades. The survey pegged the number at 69 per cent, which about matches the rate in the U.S. and the U.K. Home ownership is highest in the Atlantic provinces, led by Newfoundland and Labrador, where it was 77.5 per cent. The province with the highest proportion of renters is Quebec, where the home ownership rate is only 61.2 per cent.

One Quarter Of Canadians Spend Too Much On Shelter
In 1986, the federal and provincial governments established a threshold of housing affordability set at 30 per cent of a resident's monthly income. By that standard, a full quarter — or 3.3 million households — in Canada are paying more than they should on housing. Unsurprisingly, that number spikes in Vancouver, where a third of all households spend more than 30 per cent on shelter.

I can only believe the numbers because they are taking median salaries from down here.

Compare up North and down here salaries, and I bet it almost doubles. Yet I also doubt most guys up North are "voluntarily" going to out their wages. Same with trades that have a day job, and do cash work after hours. They probably only claim the legal money.

Pretty sure they would specify if it were net. Whenever people discuss salary, they state gross wages unless otherwise specified.
