I'm not going to research every jurisdiction for you, because that would take too long. However, this information is very easily available with some quick google searching.

 

For example, for articling positions with the Federal Government:

http://www.justice.gc.ca/eng/abt-apd/recru/sb-pa.html

 

The legal classification used to be LP if I recall correctly, but I believe they're now LA. See this article explaining the move:

https://www.tbs-sct.gc.ca/psm-fpfm/pay-remuneration/notices-avis/2013/1216a-eng.asp

 

In terms of the LA ranges, you can find them here:

https://www.tbs-sct.gc.ca/pubs_pol/hrpubs/coll_agre/la/la02-eng.asp

 

I believe the managers (i.e.: lawyers who are managing the work of other lawyers/are quite senior) are found here:

https://www.tbs-sct.gc.ca/psm-fpfm/pay-remuneration/rates-taux/rapaceexunem02-eng.asp

 

Basically, LA-Dev is an Articling student, LA-1 is the lowest level (i.e.: junior lawyer) and then you move up. Crown Counsel positions will probably be LA-1 and LA-2 at the entry levels.

 

A position (under the old classification system) is seen here:

https://emploisfp-psjobs.cfp-psc.gc.ca/psrs-srfp/applicant/page1800?poster=985872

 

That's 3-5 years experience that they're looking for, at Step #1 of the LP-02 range (which is, incidentally, basically the same as Step #1 of the LA-2A range), and is $99,000 to $137,000 for Step #1.

 

Note that these ranges only apply to Federal Government counsel positions, not Crown Corporations. For example, CATSA (another Crown Corporation) is currently seeking someone with at least 2 years experience for a term position, and that one is between $85,000 to $105,000 (which is higher than the LA-1 range for the Federal Government but lower than the LA-2A range).

 

Also, and maybe it goes without saying, but there are other secondary reasons why people work for various governments beyond money (benefits, pension, quality of life, public service, etc.).

I should have clarified that I was looking for the OCAA table which I was unable to locate through a Google search. Someone PM'ed it to me. Thanks.
