Table 4: Salary Trends
in
Canadian ARL University Libraries
Salary figures for the current year are displayed in the context of previous years. Canadian salaries are presented
in both US $ and Canadian $ denominations and the annual exchange rate used in the salary surveys is also
listed. Canadian salaries are also compared to the changes in the Canadian Consumer Price Index (CPI) to show
trends in the purchasing power of median Canadian salaries. CPI number changes are based on July CPI figures.
The source for Canadian CPI data is “Table 5: The Consumer Price Index for Canada” published in The Daily, a
Statistics Canada publication, available online at http://www.statcan.gc.ca/pub/62-001-x/2014003/t040-eng.htm.
