Canadian CEO pay: recession-proof, CCPA finds
A new study by the Canadian Centre for Policy Alternatives (CCPA) Research Associate Hugh Mackenzie shows Canada's best paid 100 CEOs appear to be recession-proof. The study looks at 2009 compensation levels for Canada’s best paid 100 CEOs and finds they pocketed an average of $6.6 million during the darkest period of the recession – a stark contrast from the total average Canadian income of $42,988.
