Assess your competitive market position with data from the Canada MTCS | Mercer Total Compensation Survey for the Energy Sector. Ensure you have the right compensation package for your current and future employees, with compensation data for 1,544 positions from 167 organizations across the country.

Current, reliable data
In light of the economic and workforce changes brought on by the COVID-19 pandemic, Mercer conducted a “data refresh” in September to address any market movement that occurred after the initial survey participation period. You will receive the results of the refresh free with your purchase.
