Depends on which type of engineer you are for design. Electrical gets paid better. Personally to get a good handle and better negotiating salary I. The long run get your pe first then move over to PM.

I’m working in construction, designing buildings components. How much raise do you think I should expect after getting my PE?

It depends on what you want and have more knowledge to do, I recommend you to choose the one you feel more comfortable with, that way even if you start earning something you don't expect you can advance faster thanks to your skills and knowledge.

Right now I’m doing design and I really enjoy it, though the pay is around 50k which I think is real low. That’s why i thought of changing career path. At least in PM, I can expect a rais after getting my pmp, but i dont know if i can expect any more than small annual raises in design… im a bit lost

For a project management position, you can likely expect a salary that is somewhere around the $70K mark. I wouldn't make this choice purely based on money though since your income will naturally increase with experience in either role

Do you mean in an entry level position? And in Canada?

At least in Texas, going into the design space can get you anywhere in the 60-90k range for an entry level role

I don't think there is a "better" career path per se. As long as you pick a job that you are qualified and happy to do, you should be able to build a successful career from there.
