Chain Compensation Survey

Restaurants Canada conducts this confidential survey annually with its chain operator members, in collaboration with research and consulting firm Canadian Compensation Resources.

The survey is funded by participating companies and results are available only to participants. For more information on how to participate and access the report, please contact Chris Elliott at

The study is designed for human resources professionals in chain restaurant and foodservice companies, and covers cash and non-cash compensation for corporate, regional and store-level positions as reported by head office. Results are reported by city or region, as well as by quick-service, full-service, average check, and other key parameters. Every second year the survey also covers benefits programs.
