International Nurse Reference of Nurse Salaries  for Nursing Job in Canada:  Registered nurse salary information for each of the provinces in Canada shows that registered nurse salaries have not achieved parity across the country. The registered nurse salary information listed here was taken from the latest contract comparison of pay scale compiled by Canadian Federation of Nurses Unions.
The data is current up to April 1 2010 and shows that registered nurse salaries in Quebec and Newfoundland/Labrador have not kept up with the other provinces.
Labor union contracts express salary in dollars per hour. Annual salary can be calculated using either the number of hours per week or the number of hours per year as defined in collective agreement language.
For more information on job classifications and how salary is influenced by level of responsibility and decision making go to the page on Registered Nurse Jobs – Nursing Labor Union Job Classifications.

It should also be noted that these wages are specifically for the pay scale of nursing labor unions and are for positions that are classified as a general duty registered nurse at the basic level of responsibility.
Here are the registered nurse salaries paid to nurses who provide patient care at the bedside.
