APPI Professional Planners move closer to pay equity

The 2017 Compensation and Benefits Survey was designed to gather information regarding the demograghics, job responsibilities and compensation and benefits of regulated members of the Alberta Professional Planners Institute (APPI). It replicates a previous survey that was conducted in 2015. 353 members completed the survey and the following statistics pertain to those who responded to the survey.

New! Quick visual summary of both reports

Alberta is known for having one of the nation’s biggest wage gaps between women and men.  In 2015, the Alberta Professional Planners Institute (APPI) conducted our first independent compensation survey.  The survey revealed a mean annual wage gap between male and female planners of $13,690.  As an organization that values ethical practice, integrity and fair process, this gap initially came as a shock. APPI Council strategically decided to conduct the compensation survey bi-annually to measure changes and report back to the membership.  From the  2017 APPI Compensation Report, we can see that progress toward wage parity has been made in the past two years.
