2023 APPI Employment Survey Report

CIP and the Provincial and Territorial Institutes and Associations (PTIAs) released the results of the second comprehensive nation-wide compensation and benefits survey of Canadian professional planners on January 14, 2024. The survey had 1,727 respondents nationally, of which 173 were members of APPI, representing 10% of the survey participants. Ninety-six percent of the 173 APPI respondents reside in Alberta, with 3% residing in the Northwest territories, and 1% in Nunavut. However, since the response was relatively small (173), the results should be interpreted with caution.
