Obviously this is a Marine Engineering centered website, so I am not familiar with the deck wages much. There is a new posting for a second class engineer for $680 a day at Canship Ugland, which in my view is a reasonable wage, more so than the rest of the companies I have heard of. From this I assume the deck should be in decent pay range, however these positions are typically in offshore Newfoundland, which is very restrictive to any other Canadians. I would assume TK is in that ballpark, however they are a shrewd operator so I do not know what they offer.
Algoma I am not sure, they seem to have a low turnover, so I assume it must be decent. McKeil, pays decent but has numerous other issues. Desgagnes, in general, is a scourge to shipping in Canada, high turnover and very low pay and support, from the feedback I get.
In general I would expect to see the following wage scale for the engineering side of things, in Canada.
TC 4th Class - $400-500/day
TC 3rd Class - $475-600/day
TC 2nd Class - $575-700/day
TC 1st Class - $700-900/day
