This research report, which is an update of research report 2011-TS-03, shows the salary difference for each step of British Columbia's (BC) Category 5 or comparable qualifications. Salaries for Vancouver public school teachers are compared to teacher salaries in Toronto (elementary), Ottawa (secondary), and Edmonton. Salaries for Prince George public school teachers are compared to teacher salaries in Near North (elementary), New Brunswick, and Lethbridge. In 2010-2011, a "Vancouver" teacher at maximum salary (Category 5) earned $10,969 less than an elementary teacher in "Toronto," $11,876 less than a secondary teacher in "Ottawa," and $16,860 less than a teacher in "Edmonton." In 2010-2011, a "Prince George" teacher at maximum salary (Category 5) earned $10,685 less than an elementary teacher in "Near North," and $16,675 less than a teacher in "Lethbridge." If BC teachers receive no salary increase for 2011-2012, a teacher in "Edmonton" with equivalent years of experience and education will earn $95,354 compared to $74,353 for a teacher in "Vancouver." The earnings gap will widen from $16,860 to $21,001. The earnings gap between a "Lethbridge" teacher and a "Prince George" teacher with 10 years teaching experience at Category 5 will widen from $16,675 to $20,808. (Contains 3 footnotes.)
