I wonder what is the best payout job in Canada. According to some survey, bank industry offer very good payout in Canada as well as other countries. But is this only industry that give a very good salary or you have your own thought about this?

My highschool math teacher told me if u wanted to go straight for the money you should go into bond trading. I'm not sure too sure on what they do exactly but youd be working for the big industries probably running their numbers and making key decision. Here in BC one of he highest paying out jobs i can think of is doctor. We are running into a shortage as for a very long time UBC was the only med school here and since it was a rather good med school its graduates especially in recent years have left to work in american hospitals to make the really big bucks. this will soon leave us with a bunch of retired doctors and no actuall practicing ones.

It depends where you live in Canada and who your employers are. The Federal Government pays the same salary for the same job no matter where you live. Other industries pay very poorly in provinces with high unemployment such as the Maritimes and pay very high salaries for the same jobs in the arctic such as the Yukon, Northwest Territories and Nunavut. Mining jobs and bushpiloting pay very well and if you are qualified to drive big truks over ice roads in the north you can earn the same salary in two months that ordinary jobs pay for the whole year. I don't think bank jobs are top payers unless you are in management.

I think it depends on where you live in canada. Where i live know there is a high unemployment rate and the jobs pay very little. People want to work and will take what they can get no mater the pay. That is why thy companies here pay low. For example, the industry my hubby works in is paying him 12/hr here. Where we use to live he was getting $22.00/hr for a similar job. But the houses cost more and the cost of living was a bit higher. Here the house we bought was cheaper and the cost af living a bit lower so 12/is good.
