TORONTO — Central Canada hospitality jobs pay the highest salaries, according to a recent survey from HVS Executive Search that compared median salaries in 230 properties across the country.

The 2012 HVS Canadian Hotel Property Study showed median salaries in Ontario and Quebec are four-per-cent higher when compared to national median salaries. On the other hand, median salaries in Atlantic Canada fared worse — eight-per-cent lower than the national median.

“The data varies by position, but this trend can be seen for a majority of the 33 positions covered in the survey. For example, the median base salary for a controller in the Central region is on average three-per-cent higher than national salaries; while the median base salary for an executive chef in the Western region is on average one-per-cent higher than national salaries. The study provides valuable insights to hotel operators to ensure they make more educated pay decisions,” said Paige Brewer, senior vice-president, Compensation Consulting at HVS Executive Search.
