1. "Annual statutory salary" is the sum of wages according to existing salary scales. Salaries are presented in current Canadian dollars without adjustments for cost of living. The average for Canada was derived from the provincial values. Unless otherwise specified, the annual statutory salaries are based on 2009/2010 salary scales in collective agreements between each jurisdiction's teachers' unions and the provincial or territorial government.
2. Weighted averages based on the number of full-time educators: younger than 30 (for "Starting salary / minimum training"); aged 35 to 44 (for "Salary after 10 years of experience / minimum training"); or aged 45 or older (for "Salary after 15 years of experience" and "Salary at the top of the scale"). Reflects public institutions in submitting jurisdictions, as reported in the 2009/2010 Elementary-Secondary Education Survey (ESES). The territories are excluded from the Canada average because the ESES does not report a breakdown by age for the number of full-time educators. The territories are included in the average for "Years from starting to top salary".
3. In Ontario and Alberta, salaries are negotiated at the school board level. The figures provided by Ontario are the midpoint of a range based on the provincially funded grid. In Alberta, the salaries shown reflect averages weighted on the student population in each school board.
4. In Manitoba, the concept of "annual statutory teachers' salaries" is not relevant because the province is not party to the collective bargaining for teachers and does not have the payroll data that would be needed to report on the salary information requested. Manitoba figures reflect the gross annual starting salary and salaries after 10 and 15 years of experience taken from averages across all school divisions.
5. In British Columbia, figures are based on the salary grid for the Surrey School District, the largest school district in the province.
