6. Rick George, CEO, Suncor Energy

2011 compensation: $14.9 million

Rick George is like many of Canada's best-paid CEOs, in that his annual compensation dwarfs that of regular Canadians in the wildest way. Way back in 1995, the top 50 CEOs in Canada made 85 times the average national pay. In 2011, due to execs like George, who earned more than $9 million in company shares and stock options that year, the top 50 CEOs in Canada made 235 times the average national pay.
