This study investigates the relationship between the Chief Executive Officer (CEO) Cash Compensation and the Firm Size in the TSX/S&P index companies from the period 2005 to the period 2010. The totaled of the one hundred and twenty companies were selected through the stratified sampling method from the TSX/S&P index. The total sampling population was divided into three groups: the “Small”, the “Medium”, and the “Large”. The research question for this study: “Is there a relationship between the CEO Cash Compensation and the Firm Size?” To answer this question, sixteen statistical models were created and accordingly sixteen attestations were performed. Overall, all the attestations results were found to have the relationship between the CEO Cash Compensation and the Firm Size. The correlations among the sub-variables of the CEO Cash Compensation – Salary and Bonus, and the sub-variables of Firm Size – Total Sales and Total Number of Employees, were found to be ranged from weak negative to strong positive ratios.
