Since its launch last week, thousands of IT professionals have been visiting the site to compare their compensation with the 5,000 responses from their peers that created the basis for the calculator.

"We created the Salary Calculator because we saw from the responses to our Salary Survey that IT professionals want benchmark information so they could see what their skills are worth in the Canadian marketplace," said Andy White, President of IT World Canada. "It was clear to us that, as individuals building careers in IT, they wanted a source of Canadian information which did not exist until now."

The calculator offers salaries based on the level within the profession, the job title, size of organization, the industry and the region within Canada. Each result includes a comparative national average and takes less than one minute to do.

IT World Canada Salary Survey 06: Insights from IT Professionals, the first report of its kind, includes salary benchmarking ,compensation, benefits, job satisfaction drivers, skills demands and outsourcing. The Report is unique because it represents responses from over 5,000 technology staff from over 2,000 companies at all levels of the industry. "The purpose," explains John Pickett, VP and Editorial Director, "is to provide business with a planning tool to help them remain competitive. All efficient business functions today require creative IT solutions and capable IT staff. This report shows hiring managers what it takes to attract, recruit and maintain the right people. It shows what they are thinking and what motivates them." The Report is being released next week..
