Document Highlights

Quebec respondents to the Compensation Outlook Survey are projecting salary increases of 2.5 per cent for non-unionized workers and 1.5 per cent for unionized employees in 2018.

In 2017, 83 per cent of Quebec employees received a base pay increase, while the voluntary turnover rate was 8.5 per cent.

All but one of the Quebec survey respondents (97 per cent) have at least one short-term incentive pay plan (STIP) in place. In 2017, the actual cost of STIPs averaged 12.6 per cent of total base pay spending—higher than the 9.3 per cent that was planned for the year.
