Staff salaries

At UBC, we look at total compensation – a combination of competitive salaries, generous benefits, great pension plans and supportive leaves.  We conduct regular surveys with other employers to ensure that UBC's salaries and overall compensation remain competitive.

How salaries are determined

For UBC employee groups with negotiated salary ranges, starting salaries are mandated in the collective agreements and are outlined in published salary scales you'll find in this section.

For non-union employee groups, starting salaries are based on the qualifications,  skills and experience of the candidate.
