Base salaries at Hydro-Québec vary from approximately $49,500 to $103,000, depending on the type of job and the employee’s experience. Naturally, overtime and bonuses are paid to employees required to carry out emergency work to restore electrical service during an outage, for instance.
For an overview of our employees’ average base salaries (all categories), as well as the benefits offered according to job category, consult Chart A-1 (tableau A-1) in this public document on Hydro-Québec’s payroll and workforce [in French only] submitted to the Régie de l’énergie.
Moreover, in the interest of transparency, we publish the salaries of Hydro-Québec’s senior management in our Annual Report (page 96 of the 2015 Annual Report). We believe our leaders’ salaries are appropriate given the size of the company and its enviable financial results.
