These were only estimates, for first year associate salary(after articling). Check around lawbuzz.ca. I'm pretty sure those numbers a accurate to within a couple thousand, I forgot what the Sister firms in Toronto are paying now, but its either right around 90 or right around 100. Stikeman and Farris both start around 80 in Vancouver. I believe BLG started at 67 in Ottawa 2 years ago. The Calgary range might be slightly off, but its basically a little lower than TO and a little higher than Vancouver. Ottawa and Vancouver are the worst deals in terms of salary, especially considering COL.
