Salary Survey

The good, the bad, and the hopeful


In 2013, when Q&Q released its last salary survey, t he industry was in a different place. Companies were facing the perceived threat of digital publishing, which led to a new category of jobs requiring advanced tech skills. Judging from the number of respondents in this year’s survey who identified as having digital-related responsibilities as part of their jobs – rather than their sole responsibility – a more holistic approach is now at play. The 2013 survey also preceded several major consolidations, including the Penguin Random House Canada merger and HarperCollins’s acquisition of Harlequin. The number of respondents from the multinationals increased this year from 19 to 30 per cent, which hopefully presents a more balanced look at the current Canadian publishing landscape.
