Controversies Surrounding Executive Compensation

According to the report, Staying Power: CEO Pay in Canada, the nation’s top 100 CEOs average $7.3 million in pay – 174 times what someone working full-time for the average wage earns in Canada.

How much is too much? A top executive could be responsible for billions in revenue and thousands of jobs. On the other hand, the Prime Minister of Canada makes a meager $327,400 (plus perks) to run the entire country.

This conference will explore the current controversies associated with excessive CEO compensation and how compensation should be tied to a company’s performance.
