Investment Banks front office bonus in Canada

I recently moved from the US and obtained PR status in Canada. My background is 4 years in front office role at VP level. I am wondering if anyone could shed some light on compensation in front office roles at investment banks in Canada compared to the US and London? I heard that bonus in Canada is only 1/3 that of sams level in the US, is that true?

For a VP, your bonuses will be tried to performance as a percentage. You will have access to short term, long term, restrictive funds, and long term grants. Yes, Canada comp will be less than US and England. What percentages were your bonus range?

No, it's not 1/3. In fact, because base salaries are lower, the bonus as a % is equivalent in Canada, with total comp being 20-25% less than NYC BB. All in comp is in the 4-500 range.

Unless you have some connections which doesn't seem likely seeing your question or some specialization/'connections'/reputation in a industry, it's going to be difficult just getting into a similar investment banking role in a new land.

Can I send you my resume ;)
Why would you want to get yelled at? US bankers are on a whole different level compared to Canadians bankers when it comes to rudeness and etc.

He doesn't need connections in Canada if he has deal experience and a history of being able to cultivate the right contacts in the industry he covers.
