Saskatchewan Wage Growth Rate Best in Canada

Released on March 31, 2015

Saskatchewan had the highest percentage year-over-year wage growth in the country in January 2015, up 4.9 per cent over January 2014 (seasonally adjusted), well ahead of the 3.0 per cent growth posted nationally, according to Statistics Canada

“The Saskatchewan economy remains strong, which in turn allows employers to increase wages for Saskatchewan people,” Immigration, Jobs, Skills and Training Minister Jeremy Harrison said.  “Compared to other jurisdictions in Canada, we are continuing to do very well.” 

In January 2015, Saskatchewan’s average weekly earnings were $987.51 (seasonally adjusted), the third highest among the provinces behind Alberta and Newfoundland and Labrador.  Nationally, the average was $947.68. 

 The three industries with the highest year-over-year percentage growth in earnings (seasonally adjusted) are arts, entertainment and recreation (up 13.0 per cent), information and cultural industries (up 12.0 per cent) and transportation and warehousing (up 11.6 per cent).

“Saskatchewan has some of the highest wages in the nation, which helps us attract the skilled and professional workers our employers need to fill job vacancies,” Harrison said.  “Our strong, diversified economy will continue to provide benefits for all Saskatchewan people.”
