Canadian Contractor‘s 6th Annual Salary Survey, sponsored by OutRank by Rogers, is on the press.  If you are a subscriber, it’ll be in your mail box (while we still HAVE mail boxes) in about 3 weeks.

Here’s a sneak preview of some of the 14 questions about income, profits, margins, etc. that we cover in this issue.

71% of Alberta contractors responding reported an increase in sales over the past year – making Alberta (not surprisingly) the most “optimistic” region in our Canadian readership. But not everyone in Western Canada is wearing rose-coloured glasses. Only 51% of B.C. contractors reported increasing sales. Ontario was next lowest at 53%.

The question was:

Have your sales increased in the past year? The % of contractors reporting YES are shown below…

Alberta                                      71%

Atlantic                                     64%

Quebec                                     60%

Manitoba/Saskatchewan            59%

Ontario                                     53%

British Columbia                        51%
