Computer Engineers: Average Salaries in Canada
Qualified and experienced Computer Engineers can expect to make up to $119,200 per year in Canada, according to salary data.
The highest salaries are available in the big cities, including Calgary, Toronto, Vancouver and Ottawa.
Canada’s smaller cities offer lower salaries, but also a lower cost of living. In Quebec City, for example, Computer Engineer salaries top out at $92,800. Targeting the right city, therefore, is important.
