    Québec survey on total compensation (ERG)

    The Enquête sur la rémunération globale is an annual survey of a sample of enterprises with 200 or more employees in Québec. It is a scientific survey based on rigorous methodology.

    The ERG is unique in the compensation field, as regards both the compensation package and the jobs covered. It is one of the only Canadian labour-market surveys that compiles data not only on salaries but also on benefits, hours of work, workforce characteristics (seniority, union status and sex) and paid time off. By examining total compensation, the survey offers a more complete picture than the comparison of salaries. The publication of this type of information constitutes the added value of the ERG compared with other compensation surveys.
