Salary SURVey

Cannabis At Work is launching a cannabis industry salary survey. We act as the neutral, third-party in the collection and analysis of the data. Upon conclusion on the survey, all participating organizations receive a report of the aggregate results and salary trends.

The salary survey will provide you with data on salary and benefits for approximately 10 benchmark positions commonly found in Licensed Producers. You can then use this information when hiring or making salary administration decisions.


  • Participants confirmed in February 2018
  • Data collection occurs in March 2018
  • Data analysis occurs in April 2018
  • Report released in May 2018

How It Works:

Participating organizations will be sent the survey tool (excel spreadsheet) for    completion. The survey tool contains all the fields we need completed, so you simply complete it and send it back to us.

  • The data we collect will include:

o   Hourly or annual base salary data, including minimums, control points and maximums (as applicable)

o   Bonuses or incentives

o   Salary administration adjustments dates

o   Proposed or anticipated salary increases

o   Employee benefits

  • Once we receive all the submissions we will analyze the data and create a report of the aggregate results and trends. Your salary data will never be reported individually, always as an aggregate of the participating companies.

Benchmark Positions:
The benchmark positions that we will be collecting data for, include:

  • Senior Person In Charge
  • Cultivation Manager
  • Quality Assurance Person
  • Cultivation Technician
  • Shipping & Receiving
  • Accounting Lead
  • HR Lead
  • Marketing Lead
  • Processing Assistant
  • Customer Care Specialist

If you do not have all the positions listed, that is fine, just submit data for the positions you do have.

Survey Terms:
Cannabis At Work will sign a confidentiality agreement for each participating organization.

There is typically a fee of $450 + GST for participating and receiving the salary data. For individuals that indicated interest at the Lift Expo in Toronto, this fee will be waived.  

If you're interested in participating, please confirm your interest with Alison McMahon at or 780-953-3527 prior to March 1, 2018.
