The minimum wage in Saskatchewan will increase to $11.06 an hour from $10.96 an hour on October 1, 2018.
The increase is the 10th since this government took office. An indexation formula has been used to calculate increases in the minimum wage since 2011.
The province also continues to have a low personal income tax rate, ensuring low income earners, including minimum wage earners, keep more of their money.
Saskatchewan’s legislation provides for an annual review based on changes to the Consumer Price Index and the average hourly wage for the previous year. Any changes to the minimum wage are to be announced by June 30. Changes take effect October 1.
