Salary differentials for Canadian general counsel who are director level compared to executive level

Canadian Lawyer gathered salary data from 12 Canadian general counsel. The findings broke them into “director level” and “executive level.” The salary differential was large, as the median for the directors was $155,000 (Canadian dollars) versus $207,000 for the executives (30% higher).

The sample is very small, but the point might still be credible that Executive Vice Presidents – assuming that is partly what the “executives” correspond to – are paid much more than lower-ranking corporate officers who head a legal group.
