I was stating the average across each country with the title scientist, no matter if they have a PhD or not. Yes I'm in Vancouver but I'm still paid the country average. Most scientist jobs in Canada are in Vancouver or Toronto, with some in Quebec where it may be cheaper to live. As an example, the average postdoc salary in Canada is 46000CAD, the gap in salary is disgraceful, I would highly recommend industry over academia as based on the numbers academia don't value PhDs as much as industry does.

By the way, does your company pay you bonus in addition to base salary??
