9. Robert Friedland, (former) CEO, Ivanhoe Mines

2011 compensation: $12.6 million

More than any other CEO in this top 10 list, Friedland's 2011 pay package was directly tied to his job performance. That year, according to the Canadian Centre for Policy Alternatives, Friedland earned more than 85 per cent ($10.8 million) of his compensation in company shares, meaning that value could sink or swim in relation to the stock price of Ivanhoe Mines. In August 2012, Ivanhoe Mines changed its name to Turquoise Hill Resources as part of a 51 per cent stake buyout, and company founder Friedland stepped down as CEO.
