Highest Wage Growth In Canada

Released on July 25, 2019

New figures released today show Saskatchewan had the highest increase in average weekly earnings among the provinces in May, up 5.8 per cent year-over-year, well ahead of the national increase of 3.4 per cent.

May’s average weekly earnings in the province were $1,070.11 (seasonally adjusted), the second highest in the nation.

“In spite of the external headwinds facing our provincial economy, it is very encouraging to see the growth in earnings,” Immigration and Career Training Minister Jeremy Harrison said.  “The hard working men and women of our province benefit from the rise in wages, which supports a better quality of life for Saskatchewan people.”

Industries with the highest year-over-year earnings growth were mining, oil and gas (up 24.5 per cent), health care and social assistance (up 14.3 per cent) and arts, entertainment and recreation (up 6.1 per cent).
