So how much should you be making as a Supply Chain Analyst in Canada?

July 4, 2014

Here’s the latest installment of our Supply Chain Salary Info series. Previously, we’ve addressed Salary figures for Supply Chain Managers, Supply Chain Directors, and Procurement Directors (in the U.S. and Canada).

Supply Chain Analyst is one of the perennial bread-and-butter roles for Argentus’ recruiters. Analysts typically have between 1 and 5 years of experience. The key skills are, obviously, analysis: the ability to evaluate Supply Chain Data and forecast Supply Chain performance based on a number of metrics (and using sophisticated Supply Chain software).

But we’ve been hearing from our clients over the past year or two that what really sets apart your run of the mill analyst from great Supply Chain Analysts is their “soft skills” – their presentation, interpersonal, communication and relationship-building skills that allow them to synthesize data and present it to a diversity of stakeholders within a given organization. Our clients are telling us that this is also the hardest thing for these companies to find, and we’re willing to bet that the Supply Chain Analysts at the high end of these salary bands are those that have that extra something that makes them stand apart from the crowd.

So without further ado, here are the salary bands for Supply Chain Analysts in Toronto:

These salary bands seem to follow the trend we’ve noticed for more senior positions within our recruiting vertical, which is one of slightly higher salaries on average for Supply Chain Professionals in Alberta, perhaps owing to the immense growth of the energy sector in that region. Salaries for Supply Chain Analysts in Ontario, which has lots of Consumer Goods and Manufacturing Supply Chain Jobs, and Montreal, which has quite a few Supply Chain jobs in the Pharmaceutical industry, appear to be fairly equal. Interestingly, the salary bands for the Vancouver market are highest of the bunch.
