Find out where jobs are at, how much they pay, and lots more
Apprenticeship wages vary from trade to trade and depend on location, but generally apprentices earn a percentage of a journeyperson’s wage. This wage increases each year of their apprenticeship until they receive their Certificate of Qualification, after which they will make a full journey person salary.

To find salary ranges for specific trades, visit the Canadian Government's website. Type in the job description and the city and click search. You will get a list of jobs available in that area, and an general idea of the hourly rates (though many jobs listings will say "Depends on experience.")

Another website with lots of helpful statistics is: where you can enter a job description, city, skill level, etc., and it will give you general stats on pay rates, job satisfaction, career paths and more.

A third website that offers some great info is on yearly average earnings, how it compares to median wages across Canada, the pay level at the entry level compared to that of an experienced worker, as well as how much tax you would pay.

For example:
The average Carpenter salary in Saskatoon, SK is $47,655 per year or $24 per hour. This is around 1.5 times more than the median wage of the country. Entry level positions start at $33,000 while most experienced workers make up to $67,000. These results are based on 12 salaries extracted from job descriptions.

In Saskatchewan, Canada, if you make 47,654.75 $ a year, you will be taxed 11,358.21 $. That means that your take home pay will be 36,296.54 $ per year, or 3,024.71 $ per month. Your average tax rate is 23.83% and your marginal tax rate is 40.05%

Spend some time clicking around on all three of these websites, and you will come away with a much better idea of the jobs available and how much they pay.

Have fun!
