Released on September 29, 2017Saskatchewan’s minimum wage will increase from $10.72 to $10.96 on October 1, 2017.
The government introduced an indexation formula in 2010. Increases are announced by June 30 and take effect on October 1 of each year.
This is the 10th increase to the minimum wage since 2007, when minimum wage was $7.95.
The increase will have the greatest impact on nearly 50,000 minimum wage and low-wage earners in the province. Of that group, 62 per cent are women and 35 per cent are youth aged 15 to 19. Thirty-two per cent of low-wage earners are students.
