About the Study

In 2003 and again in 2008, the Cultural Human Resources Council (CHRC) released a National Compensation Study for Management and Administration in Not-for-profit Arts Organizations, carried out in partnership with the Canada Council for the Arts and the Department of Canadian Heritage. It proved to be a valuable document for cultural managers, employers and Boards of Directors alike, and there have been many requests for an update over the years.

Given the increasingly competitive nature of the labour market, CHRC believed that having current compensation data was critical for recruitment, retention and human resource planning. As a result, a Compensation Study update, funded by the Canada Council for the Arts and the Department of Canadian Heritage was undertaken by CHRC and Mercer Canada in 2017.

Over 4,000 organizations in the sector were invited to participate in the Study, which was conducted from October to December 2017.
