FOREWORD
The Value of Professional Services is one of APEGA’s most highly sought after documents
distributed by Member Services. It provides APEGA members, both individual and corporations,
with an unbiased salary and benefits comparison across a wide range of industries in Alberta. This
year, 87 employers participated to give 9,500 APEGA member data points, representing APEGA’s
10 regional branches and 10 industry sectors.

The purpose of this salary survey and the Value of Professional Services report is to encourage fair
compensation for individual practitioners while helping corporations remain competitive in an
aggressive labour market. APEGA encourages you to use this, along with any other resources you
may have at your disposal, to ensure and/or to provide compensation that reflects the appropriate
value, keeping in mind current labour-market conditions.

We appreciate the effort required by the companies who participate in this survey. Without your
help, this service would not be possible. If the over 13,000 hits by individual IP addresses this past
year provides any indication, your efforts are appreciated by everyone. APEGA will continue to
respond to requests to provide new information in new formats that you may find valuable. Any
comments on the document are welcome and can be addressed to myself:
Jessica Vandenberghe at (780) 426-3990 or (800) 661-7020 or jvandenberghe@apega.ca.

Highlights of this report are also in the September 2012 PEG magazine.

Thank you for your continued support and a special thanks to Laricina Energy Ltd. for supplying the
cover photo for this year’s edition.

Sincerely,




Jessica Vandenberghe, P.Eng., M.Sc.
APEGA Director, Outreach and Member Services

EXECUTIVE SUMMARY

This year, 87 employers participated giving over 9,500 APEGA members data points, all of which
represents APEGA’s 10 regional branches and 10 industry sectors.

For engineers, across all industry, the average base salary ranged from $49,911 for an A- (co-op
student) responsibility level to $212,095 for an F+ responsibility category. For geoscientists, across
all industry, the average base salary ranged from $50,613 for an A- (co-op student) responsibility
level to $230,971 for an F+ responsibility category.

As expected, base salaries across all responsibility categories (ranging from A- to F+) have
increased for both engineers and geoscientists, with the exception of the F+ management engineer,
which decreased by 1.5%. The range in increase was from 1.8 to 4.9% for engineers and 1.6 to
14.5% for geoscientists. It is well known that a labour shortage is upon us, which is expected to
continue well over the next decade. As more engineers and geoscientists leave the workforce, the
demand for experienced professionals will increase. This is apparent in an increase in the number
of hits to APEGA’s job board. As such, APEGA predicts the increase in salary from 2012 to 2013 to
be 2.4% (taking into account a 0.4% increase in Alberta inflation). Participants in the salary survey
predict a salary increase of 3.3% (having a range from 2.2 to 7.5%).

Another expected outcome from the resulting labour shortage will be an increase in both total
compensation as well as more diverse benefits.

Along with increases in both salary and compensation, the majority of industry is looking to tap into
other possible pools of potential members, especially those of internationally educated graduates,
females, and Aboriginals. Initiatives to attract, retain and advance these individuals within the
engineering or geoscience profession have arisen in the form of outreach and diversity
programming. APEGA has established partnerships and collaborations with government, industry
and various outreach organizations and has set an aggressive target of increasing the female
members to 30% and Aboriginal members to 2% by 2030. To support this, the salary survey will be
one means to gather information to better gauge progress.

It is expected that this report will encourage fair compensation for individual practitioners while
helping corporations remain competitive in an aggressive labour market. APEGA encourages you
to use this and any other resources you may have at your disposal to ensure fair compensation that
reflects the value provided by the practitioner, keeping in mind current labour-market conditions. In
order to continue this worthwhile endeavor, APEGA would like to encourage more participation from
permit holders to ensure accuracy and representation.

SALARY SURVEY OVERVIEW
APEGA Overview
The Association of Professional Engineers and Geoscientists of Alberta (APEGA) has been a vibrant and
progressive self-governing association since 1920. We serve the public interest by regulating the practices of
engineering and geoscience in Alberta, by providing leadership for our professions, and by upholding our
members in their professional practice. It is hoped that APEGA will be a valued agent of excellence in
professional practice and an internationally respected leader of the engineering and geoscience professions.

All Alberta practicing engineers and geoscientists must be registered with APEGA as members and all Alberta
companies practicing engineering and geoscience must be registered with APEGA as permit holders. A
number of permit holders and members practice both nationally and internationally and may hold multiple
engineering and geoscientist registrations, depending on the geographic region in which they are working. An
engineer and geoscientist must obey the rules and regulations pertaining to practicing within the geographic
location of the work they are doing.

Currently, APEGA has over 65,000 members and over 4,200 permit holders. Table 1 shows the total permit
holders and members, also broken down by gender, in each APEGA branch as well as outside of Alberta [1].
Figure 1 shows the 10 regional branches of APEGA within Alberta.

BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE
APEGA has conducted the salary survey for many years as a means to uphold our members in their
professional practice. Member services realize the importance of a fair comparison tool for both salary and
compensation across the province. It is clear that the professions are involved in the major aspects of
Alberta’s and Canada’s economic growth.

The science of economics is quite complex and it has to be understood by users of this document, that the
most important variable to determining salary ranges for any given occupation is the market. The relationship
between supply and demand for a single profession (engineering or geoscience) can be affected in many
ways and these factors differ from those that affect a different profession or occupation. This salary survey is
a small snapshot of what a portion of Alberta’s industries do for salary and compensation and should be used
in perspective.

SALARY SURVEY DATA COLLECTION METHOD
This year’s salary survey was sent to all Alberta permit holders registered with APEGA that have a member
size larger than two (the company size itself may be larger) [2]. It is felt that companies with less than two
members will bias the survey. The survey is completed by the company Human Resources Department. The
data requested is for the past 12 months (for the deadline in June, companies include annual data from June
2011 to May 2012). To view the questionnaire, please see Appendix A.

All information gathered is anonymous. Information is gathered around base salary, additional cash, and
compensation information based on the level of responsibility for each Professional Engineer / Geoscience
position within the company. Also collected are the employee’s year of graduation and gender.

The results are compiled and reported in September. To view past versions of the salary survey, please visit
the following APEGA link:

There is no cost for participation or use of this salary survey. This is done to provide a free service to
members and to encourage as much industry participation as possible. If you are interested in taking part in
next year’s survey and did not receive the salary survey package this year, please ensure your APEGA profile
and information is up to date or e-mail either:

Jessica Vandenberghe (jvandenberghe@apega.ca) or Sarah Manning (smanning@apega.ca).

STATISTICS OF THE 2012 PARTICIPANTS
For the 2012 salary survey, a total of 87 employers participated, for a list of participants, please see Appendix
B. There were a total of 9,640 employee data points, but 5 of these data points were incomplete, leaving a
total of 9,635 data points prior to removing outliers. Tables 2 and 3 give more detail as to the size of
company as well as APEGA branch region, designation, and gender, all prior to removing salary outlier data
points.

HOW TO USE THE SALARY SURVEY
OVERVIEW
The intention of this survey is to provide a fair and unbiased comparison tool for both salary and
compensation across the province for employee and employer reference. The use of this guide, along with
any other salary and compensation data, to justify changes to a member’s current compensation is the sole
responsibility of the member to take forward to their employer. This guide can also be used by companies to
ensure that they are remaining competitive in the engineering and geoscience market and providing fair
compensation to their employees.

The following section will outline the steps that will allow you to accurately use the salary survey information.
The steps include:
   1. Determine your Responsibility Category;
   2. Determine your 2012 Base Salary Results for your Responsibility Category;
   3. Determine your Estimated Salary Adjustment;
   4. Determine your 2012 Total Compensation Results for your Responsibility Category.

It is vital that you accurately determine your responsibility category, as interpretation of the salary survey
results depends on this. If you are unsure of your category, please work with your employer and/or Human
Resources representative.

DEFINITION AND TERMINOLOGY
Throughout the next section, there will be use of several terms that will be clarified here.

When using this report, it is important to keep in mind that both salary and benefits should be considered
since both are part of the total payroll cost of an employee. It is worth noting that the total payroll cost of an
employee does not include office space, secretarial help, insurance, etc., which are added to the company
payroll when an employee starts. Figures 2 and 3 show a pictorial definition of the terminology used in this
report.

Salary is broken into two parts: base salary and overtime compensation. Depending on your responsibility
level and the company itself, overtime compensation may or may not be given.

The base salary (also referred to as quoted yearly salary or regular salary) includes pay for time worked at
normal rates plus the cost of the benefits for time-not-worked. Base salary does not include payment of
overtime. The benefits for “time-not-worked” are a payment made to the employee for the following:
    (a) Time off from work (the employee does not have to be at the place of work), or periods when the
        employee is at work but not working and for which there is no reduction to the quoted yearly salary
        (for monthly or yearly paid employees);
    (b) Payment in lieu of holiday days and vacation days (for hourly paid employees);
    (c) Holiday payment. This includes the nine statutory holidays in Alberta as well as holidays declared by
        Federal, Provincial, or Municipal authorities and authorized by the company. These currently include:
              Statutory holidays: New Year’s Day, Family Day, Good Friday, Victoria Day, Canada Day,
                 Labour Day, Thanksgiving Day, Remembrance Day, and Christmas Day
              Declared Holidays: Boxing Day and Heritage Day
    (d) Vacation days;
    (e) Other days and/or periods such as: sick leave not covered by general benefits. For example travel
        time, clean-up time, rest and/or coffee periods, personal leave with approval (example: jury duty,
        voting, bereavement, maternity, paternity, etc.).


The benefits portion can also be broken into three parts:
    General benefits;
    Additional cash compensation;
    Other compensation.

The general benefits are a payment by the employer to the employee directly or to a third party on behalf of
the employee in order to secure the employee an advantage or protection of benefit to the employee.

Provision by the employer or the making available of (at no or reduced cost) some facility, object or service of
benefit to the employer. This benefit includes:
    (a) Cash Benefit Payments made by the employer on the behalf of the employee for:
              a. Pension or superannuation provisions;
              b. Plans for hospital, medical, dental, sickness, disability, life, income maintenance or the like;
              c. Canada Pension Plan, unemployment insurance, worker’s compensation plans;
              d. Termination or severance pay, the premium portion of premium pay, relocation assistance.
    (b) No cash benefit provision by the employer at no or reduced cost to the employee of: recreation
         facilities and/or equipment, food, lodging, loans, parking, transportation, educational opportunities,
         discounts on company products, etc.

It should be noted that the pension or superannuation provision does not include amounts which the employer
sets aside to fund what might be called incentive or productivity plans such as profit sharing plans and one-
time bonus plans, which are based on productivity measures. These plans should be considered and
administered apart from the basic salary and benefit system in order to preserve the integrity of the basic
system.

Additional cash compensation includes direct payments to the employee in the form of the following:
    Cash bonus payments;
    Employee savings plan matching;
    Employer contributions to RRSPs;
    Profit sharing payments;
    Performance/merit bonus;
    Productivity/gain sharing;
    Commissions;
    Other.

The other compensation category of benefits includes:
    Stock options/purchases;
    Work Vehicle;
    Vehicle Allowance;
    Parking;
    Other.

The total compensation quoted is the sum of the base salary, additional cash compensation, overtime
compensation, and other compensation.

When reporting the salary survey numbers, there are several statistics that will be used, as shown in Table 5

In the cases where the statistic cannot be calculated, the table will list “no value”. This differs from the “no
data” comment.

As a point of interest, an indication of whether the data set is positively or negatively skewed can be
determined by finding the difference between the mean and the mode. A negatively skewed data set is where
the mean is less than the mode, whereas a positively skewed data set is where the mean is greater than the
mode.

STEP 1: DETERMINE YOUR RESPONSIBILITY CATEGORY
The first step is to determine your responsibility category. It is vital that you accurately determine your
responsibility category, as interpretation of the salary survey results depends on this. If you are unsure of
your category, please work with your employer and/or Human Resources representative.

Figure 5 gives a high level overview of each responsibility category (A- through F+), including a generic title
and description.

The tables following give a more detailed description for the Responsibility Levels based on:
    Duties;
    Recommendations, Decisions, and Commitments;
    Supervision Received;
    Leadership Authority and/or Supervision Exercised;
    Guide to Entrance Qualifications.

To more accurately determine your Responsibility Category (A- through F+), please refer to Appendix C,
which gives a more detailed survey based on job duties, education required for your position, experience
required for your position, decisions, supervision received, leadership authority, supervision extent, physical
demands, job environment, job related travel, and safety hazards.

Appendix D gives an overview of bench mark job descriptions that can aid you in determining your category
rating. These job descriptions range from the Member-In-Training level to Senior Management and will not
necessary exactly match your job, but is given as examples. It is recommended that you complete the
detailed survey in Appendix C.

                RESPONSIBILITY CATEGORY
Once you have determined your responsibility category, you can determine the range of salaries for your responsibility
category per industry category. Additional results from the salary survey by gender, location, years of experience,
company size, and around co-op student and degree can be found in the “Full Salary Survey Results” section.

As mentioned previously, the industrial sectors considered for the 2012 salary survey include:

       Engineering and Geoscientist Consulting Services;
       Engineering, Procurement, and Construction (EPC);
       Resource Exploitation (except oil and gas);
       Resource Exploitation (only oil and gas);
       Manufacturing (durables);
       Manufacturing (non-durables);
       Service and Control (not for profit);
       Service (for profit);
       Utility (rate controlled);
       Advanced Technologies.

A summary across all industries is also given, although it is recommended that you use the value for your industrial
sector, as it is more relevant. The data shown is for base salary. The total compensation (sum of base salary, additional
compensation, overtime compensation, and other compensation) will appear in the “Step 4: Determine your 2012 Total
Compensation Results for your Responsibility Category” section.

For clarity purposes, please note the following:

       Base salary does not include any type of bonuses, profit sharing, northern/isolation allowances, overtime, or pay
        out of unused vacation. Base salary is reported as an annual value.
       Total compensation is the sum of base salary, additional compensation, overtime compensation, and other
        compensation, where:
            o Additional cash compensation is all lump sum or re-earnable payments. This is not the same as merit,
                which is earnable each year. Additional cash compensations include commissions, cash bonus
                payments, profit sharing payments, performance/merit bonus (lump sum), and productivity/gain sharing
                payments.      This is over a full year.      This does not include overtime/shift premiums, stock
                options/purchase plans, car allowances, awards, consulting fees, club memberships, or fringe benefits;
            o Overtime compensation is considered only when the payment is made beyond the base salary;
            o Other compensation, including stock options/purchase plans, consulting fees, and other payments easily
                convertible to cash. This does not include car allowance, club memberships, parking, or other fringe
                benefits that cannot be converted to cash.

2012 BASE SALARY RESULTS
DATA OUTLIERS FOR INDUSTRY DATA SET
From the original data set of all 87 participating companies, there were 9,075 engineering data points and 565
geoscientist data points considered. There were 5 data points dismissed due to incomplete data, leaving 9,070
engineering data points and 565 geoscientist data points considered prior to data filtering. The data was then filtered to
ensure that all data points used were within three stand deviations of the average. This was done for the all industry data
set and then completed separately for each industry category as well. Details around the outlier data can be found in
Appendix E.

ALL INDUSTRY BASE SALARY FOR ENGINEERS
Table 6 shows the results for the filtered base salary data across all industries for engineers, while Figure 6 shows the 10
year trend for the all industry base salary for engineers. Table 7 gives an indication of the percentage change over the
past 3 years. The geoscience data will appear in the next section. Appendix E contains the raw engineering data prior to
filtering. The total compensation will appear in the “Step 4: Determine your 2012 Total Compensation Results for your
Responsibility Category” section further on.

ALL INDUSTRY BASE SALARY FOR GEOSCIENTISTS
Table 19 shows the base salary results for the filtered data for all industries for geoscientists. Figure 18 shows the 10
year trend for the all industry base salary data for geoscientists. The engineering data appeared in an earlier section.
Appendix G contains raw data for geoscientists, for comparison sake. The total compensation will appear in the
“Determine your 2012 Total Compensation Results for your Responsibility Category” section.

The lower geoscientist participation in the survey must be kept in mind for the data presented. With a small sample for
this year’s survey; the representation to the full provincial geoscientist membership is not as accurate as it could be. To
ensure more accurate data for future surveys, we encourage company participation in this free survey.

BASE SALARY BY INDUSTRY CATEOGORY FOR GEOSCIENTISTS
Table 21 and Figure 19 show a summary of the average base salaries across all the industry categories for the 2012
geoscientist data. As it can be seen, the Engineering, Procurement and Construction, Manufacturing (durables or non-
durables), Utility (rate controlled), and Advanced Technologies had no representation this year. Again, we would
encourage geoscientist company participation in future surveys.

The following tables (Tables 22 to 26) give more detail into the statistical information for each individual industry category
that was reported. All data shown has been filtered, with the raw data tables in Appendix G (the only data shown is for
Resource Exploitation (only oil and gas) as this was the only data set that had outliers). The figures (figures 19 to 22)
following the tables show the 10 year trend in base salary for that industry category, with the actual 10 year data are
shown in Appendix G for all categories (even those not shown). Just a reminder too, that not all the past 10 year’s data
was available. The “no data” points are not shown in the figures and the trend will appear broken.

STEP 3: DETERMINE YOUR ESTIMATED SALARY ADJUSTMENT
INFLATION FACTOR
When determining your salary adjustment, the first important factor to consider is the increase in inflation from year to
year. Inflation is a rise in the general level of prices of goods and services in an economy over a period of time. A chief
indication of inflation is the trend of the annualized percentage change in a general price index (such as the Consumer
Price Index) over time. Figure 23 summarizes the change in Consumer Price Index (CPI) for Canada, Alberta, Edmonton,
and Calgary [4, 5, and 6]. This data was taken from Statistics Canada and is the non-seasonally adjusted values. The
CPI takes into account food, shelter, household operations, furnishings and equipment, clothing and footwear,
transportation, health and personal care, recreation, education and reading, and alcoholic beverages and tobacco
products.

For 2012, the Canada CPI is 1.2, for Alberta it is 0.4, while for Edmonton and Calgary it is 0.4 and 0.3, respectively.

In a balanced job market, the cost of living adjustments tend to lag behind inflation by about one year, though in tight
markets, pay adjustments may come more frequently.

DEMAND FACTOR
The next factor to consider is the demand factor. The demand factor can be inferred from the Government of Alberta
“Alberta’s Occupational Demand and Supply Outlook 2011-2021” document [7]. This document summarizes the work that
the Alberta Government does to predict the supply and demand for different occupations within Alberta between the years
2011 and 2021. It is based on a series of sub-models that create two major models for either the supply or the demand
portion of Alberta’s labour force.

The document quotes [8]:
       “Over the next ten years, Alberta’s labour market is projected to grow by approximately 607,000 workers
       at an annual average rate of 2.4%. A net increase of 492,000 workers is expected to join the labour
       force, as occupational supply increase at an annual rate of 1.9%. For the coming decade, Alberta could
       experience a labour shortage of approximately 114,000 workers.”




                                 2012 Value of Professional Services                                                                                       Page 48 of 136
This document goes to break down the projections into occupational groups. In most categories for engineers and
geoscientists, there is a predicted shortage that Alberta is currently experiencing, which is shown to escalate up to the
year 2021 (this is the upper limit of the document). The only exception is engineering management, which is shown to
have a surplus until 2014 and then it continues to have a shortage up until 2021.

According to our survey respondents, 73% indicate that they are expecting to add to their professional staff over the next
year, while 23% indicate that they would be maintaining current staffing levels. No one expects to reduce their staffing
numbers in the upcoming year. Based on these factors, it is expected that the demand for APEGA members will continue
to grow, particularly in the resource sector. Based on this, APEGA is predicting a higher demand factor of 2.0%. This is
generalized across the broad range of disciplines and industry types within Alberta. Your Human Resources
representative may feel that the demand factor should be adjusted based on specific expertise and field of practice.

Based on these two factors, you can predict your salary increase to be approximately the sum of the CPI index and the
demand factor.

The following is an illustrative example as to how to calculate your expected salary adjustment.

        If you are a Level C Engineer:

        Inflation Factor (CPI Index)               0.4% for Alberta
        Demand factor                              2.0%
        Estimated Salary Adjustment:               2.4%

It is cautioned though that these factors are for consideration, and may be used on top of other external factors such as
the effect of new hires, attrition rates, internal promotions, etc. on the salary pool behaviour.

From our salary survey, 88% of our employers planned to increase salaries for the next 12 months, while 12% planned to
keep salaries stable. No employers plan to decrease salaries. On average, the salary increase from the employers who
participated was 3.3% (with a range of 2.2 to 7.5%).

LEVEL OF PERFORMANCE FACTOR
A third factor in determining your salary adjustment is your level of performance. Most companies have a performance
evaluation process that is often tied to performance ratings and/or salary increases. Performance often ranges from
Needs Improvement to Adequate to Star Performer.

As to how to apply this to your salary adjustment, consider the following illustration:

        If a Level C Engineer has a few years’ experience on the job, but has brought little direct relevant
        experience, or perhaps has come from outside the company and still needs guidance in decision making,
        the Level C Engineer could expect base pay in the range of the D25 to D50 range ($78,728 to $85,451).

        Whereas, if a Level C Engineer makes fast, reliable decisions, presents recommendations that are
        generally accepted, and is considered a strong member of the team, his/her salary range would be in the
        D50 to D90 range ($98,706 to $106,080) per year.

STEP 4: DETERMINE YOUR 2012 TOTAL COMPENSATION RESULTS FOR YOUR
        RESPONSIBILITY CATEGORY

2012 TOTAL COMPENSATION RESULTS
Now that you have a good idea of your base salary and adjustment, you can compare your current total compensation to
those across the province in your industry category. The data points included are the same ones that were included in the
filtered base salary data reporting, to provide consistency in reporting and because the benefits reported vary quite
significantly. The first part of this section will include the total compensation tables for engineers and the second part for
geoscientists. For further information on benefits, see the “Full Salary Survey Results” section.

As mentioned in the “Definition and Terminology” section, the annual total compensation is reported as the sum of the
annual base salary, additional cash compensation, overtime compensation, and other compensation. Keep in mind that
the base salary does not include any kind of bonuses, profit sharing, northern/isolation allowances, overtime, or pay for
unused vacation. For clarity purposes, please note the following:
     Additional cash compensation is all lump sum or re-earnable payments. This is not the same as merit, which is
       earnable each year. Additional cash compensations include commissions, cash bonus payments, profit sharing
       payments, performance/merit bonus (lump sum), and productivity/gain sharing payments. This is over a full year.
       This does not include overtime/shift premiums, stock options/purchase plans, car allowances, awards, consulting
       fees, club memberships, or fringe benefits;
     Overtime compensation is considered only when the payment is made beyond the base salary;
     Other compensation, including stock options/purchase plans, consulting fees, and other payments easily
       convertible to cash. This does not include car allowance, club memberships, parking, or other fringe benefits that
       cannot be converted to cash.

For further information, please refer to the “Definition and Terminology” section.




            2012 Value of Professional Services                                                  Page 50 of 136
The following table gives an overview of the benefits and compensation for each responsibility level. For example, if you
are a responsibility level of D, 59% of the D respondents receive employer contributions to RRSPs. As it can be seen,
benefits and compensation are not consistent and eligibility and offering will depend on your employer’s policies.

ALL INDUSTRY TOTAL COMPENSATION FOR ENGINEERS
The following section outlines the total compensation for engineers. Table 28 gives an overview across all the industry
sectors, while Figure 24 gives the 10 year trend. It is expected with the impending labour shortage that total
compensation will increase from previous years.

TOTAL COMPENSATION BY INDUSTRY CATEGORY FOR ENGINEERS
Table 29 gives an overview across the industry sectors for total compensation for engineers, with the same information
shared in Figure 25. As expected, the oil and gas resource exploration industry is the forerunner. Tables 30 to 39 give
specifics for each industry sector.

ALL INDUSTRY TOTAL COMPENSATION FOR GEOSCIENTISTS
The following section outlines the total compensation for geoscientists. Table 40 and Figure 26 give an overview across
all the industry sectors. A note of caution that the participation of geoscientists in this year’s and past year’s surveys may
not be accurately representing the provincial geoscientist membership. As such, we would recommend future
participation in this free service to improve accuracy and reliability.

TOTAL COMPENSATION BY INDUSTRY CATEGORY FOR GEOSCIENTISTS
Table 41 and Figure 27 give an overview across the industry sectors for total compensation for geoscientists. As noted,
many of the industries are not represented, but like the engineering data, the forerunner industry is oil and gas resource
exploitation. Tables 42 to 46 give the specifics of the industry sectors that had participation.

FULL SALARY SURVEY RESULTS
OVERVIEW
Along with the statistics already reported, there were a number of other statistics gathered. This section will include a
breakdown and report on gender, location, years of experience, company size, as well as university specific information
on co-op student salary and degree. Although for some data sets reported the previously filtered data was used, but for
several of these categories, separate filtering was completed to ensure accuracy. Data that lay outside three standard
deviations of the average were considered outliers. The number of outlier points is reported in Appendix E.

GENDER DATA BY RESPONSIBILITY CATEGORY FOR ENGINEERS
Figure 28 and Table 47 show the data for gender by responsibility category for engineers. This data set was based on the
all industry filtered data for engineers. The trend supports the impending labour shortage, with the majority of participants
in higher responsibly categories and presumably closer to retirement.

The gender distribution data trends are a bit higher than the actual membership data that is reported in Table 1, which had
85.6% male engineers, 14.0% female engineers, and 0.4% undeclared gender engineers.

Table 48 and Figure 29 show a summary of the average base salary compared to the industry average for engineers
broken down by gender. It is encouraging to see very similar salaries at the lower responsibility levels between genders
and it is hoped as these employees gain experience that this trend also continues. The difference in salary at upper
management/responsibility categories still has a very visible difference. It is expected that this report will encourage fair
compensation for individual practitioners while helping corporations remain competitive in an aggressive labour market.

One of APEGA’s strategic goals is “attracting, retaining, advancing individuals to the profession” and it is apparent that a
salary discrepancy may be a reason why it is difficult to retain females in the profession in upper management positions.

GENDER DATA BY RESPONSIBILITY CATEGORY FOR GEOSCIENTISTS
Figure 30 and Table 52 show the data for gender by responsibility category for geoscientists. This data set was based on
the all industry filtered data for geoscientists. Again, a similar trend is seen, where a large percentage of the population is
at a higher responsibility levels. It is encouraging to see higher levels of females entering this profession.

Table 53 and Figure 31 show a summary of the average base salary compared to the industry average for geoscientists,
where Tables 54 to 56 give specific details. It is encouraging to see geoscientist salaries, for the most part, fairly equal
across gender with the exception of the F/F+ categories.

GENDER DATA BY INDUSTRY CATEGORY FOR ENGINEERS
This section outlines the gender data by industry category for engineers. It is interesting to note that females have the
highest representation in the Service industry (both for profit and not for profit).

GENDER DATA BY INDUSTRY CATEGORY FOR GEOSCIENTISTS
This section outlines the gender data by industry category for geoscientists. Also, like the engineering data, the highest
level of female employment is the Service industry (both for profit and not for profit), although not all industries were
represented in the year’s survey.

Tables 60 to 63 and Figure 35 compare the salaries to location. For entry level positions, the higher salaries are in the
more remote locations of Fort McMurray, Vermilion, Peace Region, and Lakeland. For the middle responsibility levels, the
higher salaries are for the locations of Lakeland, Fort McMurray, and Calgary. The upper level responsibility categories
have the highest salaries in Calgary, which is expected as most operation headquarters are based in Calgary or
Edmonton.

YEARS OF EXPERIENCE DATA FOR ENGINEERS
This section outlines the data regarding years of experience. This data set was filtered with outlier data in Appendix E. A
total of 3,595 engineer filtered data points were used and 367 geoscientist filtered data points. The years of experience
was based on the last year of graduation (whether from Bachelors, Masters, or PhD degree) and makes the assumption
that is when the person entered the workforce.

Figure 38 shows an indication of the number of participants by years of experience and responsibility level. As expected,
the less years of experience, the lower level of responsibility and vice versa.

Figure 39 and Table 69 show the participation rate based on gender for years of experience. It is encouraging to see
more females entering the workforce, as with with the labour shortage, APEGA and industry are looking to attract
underrepresented groups such as females, internationally educated graduates, and Aboriginals.

The following section outlines the base salary breakdown by years of experience for all industry for engineers. It is
followed by a section that also divides if further into each responsibility category and a comparison across all responsibility
categories. It is interesting to note that the highest levels of experience don’t necessarily correlate to highest base salary.
Again though, it is assumed that the respondent entered the workforce immediately after graduation.

YEARS OF EXPERIENCE DATA BY GEOSCIENTISTS
This section outlines the data regarding years of experience. This data was filtered, with the outlier data shown in
Appendix E. The years of experience was based on the last year of graduation (whether from Bachelors, Masters, or PhD
degree) and makes the assumption that is when the person entered the workforce.

The following figure shows an indication of the number of participants per years of experience category and broken down
into responsibility categories. It is cautioned that the low number of geoscience respondents may not accurately
represent the provincial geoscientist membership. We encourage geoscientist participation in future surveys to ensure
accuracy and reliability.

Figure 43 and Table 72 show participation by gender for years of experience and it is encouraging to see the high levels
of female representation. Due to the number of participants, it is easier to see the surge of baby boomers in the higher
years of experience then with the engineering data.

COMPANY SIZE DATA FOR ENGINEERS
This section outlines the data regarding company size for engineers. This data set was filtered, with the outlier details
appearing in Appendix E. There were 8,553 filtered engineer data points used and 563 filtered geoscientist data points
used. The company size is the total number of employees, not the number of engineers and/or geoscientists exclusively.

The following section outlines an analysis done by company size for engineers, including detailed statistical information
for each company size for base salary.

The expectation would be that no matter the company size, the salary profiles should look similar to the industry average
across the responsibility levels. This is not the case, as the 11 to 20 employee companies and the 21 to 50 employee
companies differ from the all industry average.

The following table outlines the vacation entitlement by Years of Service. The responses for the survey were quite
inconsistent, due to unclear instructions and so the data could not be interpreted between “on hire”, “not offered” and
“unknown”. This will be remedied in next year’s questionnaire. The percentage totals behind the actual numbers are
calculated based on the total number of companies that responded. The trend is as expected, that the more time spent
with the company, the more vacation.

SALARY SURVEY RESULTS RELEVANT TO UNIVERSITY STUDENTS
This section outlines information around co-op student expected year of graduation. Following that is also information
based on Masters and PhD degrees. The trend for co-op students is also as expected, the further along in studies, the
higher the salary.

APPENDIX C
Advanced Method of Determining Responsibility Category
The Job Evaluation Guide is more precise and accurate in obtaining your Responsibility Category, as it considers several
different aspects to your job, including: duties, education, experience, decisions, supervision received, leadership
authority, supervision scope, physical demands, job environment, job travel, and accident and health hazards. It is
subjective to honesty. To ensure accuracy, if you believe you are between categories, chose the lower category. The
descriptions for each job factor are also quite general and will not exactly match every possible job and it is recommended
you chose the category that most closely describes your current job.

The steps for using this advanced method include:

                   Step 1: Determine your point level for each 11 job factors.
                   Step 2: Sum up your point level for each 11 job factors and compare to Table A2 below to
                           determine your classification.
                   Step 3: If the resulting Responsibility Category does not seem accurate, compare your Job
                           Factor Ratings to the Benchmark Job Descriptions shown in Appendix C and adjust
                           your point levels accordingly.

Job Factor 7: Your Supervisory Extent
This factor is concerned with the number of people you directly or indirectly supervise. The number should include your
direct reports as well as your indirect reports (i.e. if you supervise 3 people and each of those people has a team of 5,
your total will be 15). Since numbers will vary depending on factors such as shift work, seasonal work, etc., the number
should be considered a yearly average. The definition of “supervise” for this factor means you have authority over
performance evaluations that impact pay for your direct and indirect reports.

Job Factor 8: Physical Demands
This factor is concerned with the intensity and severity of the physical effort required for your job. Also considered is the
frequency and continuity of that effort. First find your level of intensity (e.g. heavy physical exertion) and then find your
frequency for that intensity level (e.g. occasional), which would result in a physical demands point level of 15. The level
you chose should most closely describe your situation.

Job Factor 11: Job Safety
This factor pertains to your job conditions in relation to exposure and intensity of safety hazards. It is understood that
employers will have the necessary safety precautions in place to reduce the risks around the safety hazards. Only the
most prevalent safety hazards should be considered, not remote possibilities. First find your safety hazard intensity (e.g.
moderate) and then find your frequency level (e.g. occasional) would result in a job safety points level of 5.
