Canadian Law Librarian Salary Survey

The Canadian Association of Law Libraries (CALL) has published its 2006 Compensation Survey on the CALL website.

This survey was principally edited by Gary H. Pon, law librarian at the Nunavut Court of Justice in Iqaluit on Baffin Island.

161 or 46.4% of eligible CALL members responded to a detailed online survey from August 8 to September 18, 2006.

Among the major findings:
  • those earning more than $70,000 jumped to 41.6% (33.3% in the last survey in 2003)
  • library directors’ or managers’ salaries average $83,750
  • librarian managers and librarians who are themselves supervised by professionals average $63,500 to $63,929
  • librarians with no supervisory responsibilities average $56,667
  • law librarians working in academic librarians had higher average salaries ($83,333) than their counterparts in other library types: librarians working in government ($70,568), law society ($68,235), law firms ($64,243), courthouse libraries ($55,000)
  • years of experience made a huge difference
  • the gender gap remains

All figures are of course in Canadian dollars.
