Listing a wage or wage range in your job posting will increase your candidate pool, and ensure interviewing resources are invested in candidates comfortable with the compensation details.

The average ECE wage in Canada is $14.10 per hour for an entry level position. Keep in mind the location of your Child Care Center, as the median can fluctuate.
