It will depend on the specific facility. Some places will pay a straight dollar amount for a differential others pay a percentage (in which case dollar amount can vary based on your base pay). I think straight dollar amount is more common.

I can't comment on the range of rates you are likely to see offered in B.C. as I'm not familiar with that particular job market.
