Our Teachers Are Among the Highest-Paid in Canada

We value our teachers and compensate them very well. A new teacher with 4 years of education will receive $59,054 as a starting salary. This is one of the highest starting salaries for teachers in Canada. A starting teacher with 6 years of education and more than 10 years of experience will receive $101,331. (Sept, 2015)

CBE teachers receive numerous benefits, including paid vacations and personal days, pension plan, healthcare, dependants' health plans and life insurance.

Substitute teachers receive a highly competitive compensation package too. Not only do they receive a competitive benefits package, but on their second day in the same job, the substitute teachers’ daily rate is upgraded to the salaried equivalent.


A Career That Grows With You

Teaching doesn’t mean being in one classroom or one school for the rest of your career. At the CBE there are plenty of opportunities inside and outside the classroom depending on your area of interest or career stage. The CBE is unique from other school boards because we offer a variety of educational programs.

You will have opportunities to broaden your career, continue your learning and develop new skills. Teacher growth is a shared responsibility. As a teacher dedicated to continuing to learn throughout your career you will find a variety of initiatives including:

  • online e-Professional Development
  • Professional Learning Communities
  • job embedded professional learning
  • professional improvement fellowships
  • many more learning opportunities

If you’re interested in growing into a leadership position, there are plenty of options to do so. Learning is our central purpose, and we encourage all teachers to further their learning through the various training and professional development programs and resources available.
