Calgary - For the biggest pay hikes in Canada, look no further than the oilpatch. A new survey by Mercer, a global consulting firm, says the energy sector is leading the country in both actual and projected salary increases.

The average base salary increase across the country is expected to be 3% next year, the same as in 2014.

But in the energy sector, the pay bump is forecast to be 3.7% in 2015 after an actual 3.9% increase this year.

When the energy sector is removed from the national sample, the average projected salary increase drops to 2.9%.

On the other end of the spectrum, transportation, equipment, consumer goods and retail/wholesale industries are expected to see the smallest salary increases.
