A recent report from the Canadian Digital Chamber of Commerce shows that salaries in the Canadian blockchain industry are amongst the highest in the country.
The Chamber of Digital Commerce Canada released its October report on the country's blockchain ecosystem, showing insights into the health of the industry, current strengths and legal needs throughout Canada.
The report collected data from more than 150 participants coming from the cryptocurrency and blockchain industries, Canada's government and academia.
The study was conducted by the Blockchain Research Institute with support from professional services company Accenture.
The report, which takes a closer look at Canada's blockchain ecosystem by region and company size, stated that the industry desperately needs government commitment to move this highly innovative technology sector forward by providing legal clarity.
"While the research showed that the blockchain industry is diverse and growing in Canada, it also surfaced challenges regarding access to funding and business services, and uncertain regulatory environments."
Although the report claims that Canada is well-positioned to become a global leader in the blockchain industry, the ecosystem is facing major challenges that include funding, lack of regulatory environment, insufficient public education and little to no cooperation of banking and auditing services.
A big positive, according to the report, is that the average annual blockchain salary in Canada is more than $98,000, making blockchain careers among the highest-paying in the country.
"Canada's existing innovation ecosystem offers best-in-class talent and pro-growth policies that can be leveraged to establish a leading global blockchain hub here at home. It is clear that Canada's blockchain ecosystem offers tremendous opportunity to those interested in a career in this field."Bitcoin tax payments in Canada.
