It depends on the locations.
Which country? Which state? Which city?

Montréal is in Québec, Canada.

It's one of the biggest towns in Canada.

I have no idea of the average salary there... should be at least 6 figures (my own personal guess from what I heard over the years).

I just found a site called payscale.com From what I can tell the average seems to be around 45-55K / year.

You might want to fill out the survey yourself to get a more accurate results (there's a lot of data taken into consideration that adds to your value, I almost didn't pick any of it to be as neutral as possible).

In Denver, CO, USA, I'd say 4 years of experience would net you in the 60-70k range. After 6-8 years, I'd say you should be in the 80s.

4 years experience can gain at least 6 figures in Montreal? Very attractive!

Heh... don't get too excited... it apparently includes 2 decimal places Tongue

Sorry for my over estimations... but the last "jobs" I had, I was charging 75$ / hour, that's easily in the 6 figures. I just assume that it was somewhat normal for that town, apparently not!!.

Ninja, where was the job?
A couple months ago, a national contracting company asked me if I was willing to work for $30 per hour in my area (update NY). I told the guy I paid $16 per hour for a college intern a couple years ago and he expected me to work for $30 per hour. Even a college graduate would get paid more than that.
