Minimum Wage In Saskatchewan Is $11.32 Effective October 1

Released on September 23, 2019

Employers and employees are reminded that Saskatchewan’s minimum wage will increase to $11.32 as of Tuesday, October 1.

The change, which was announced in June, is the 11th increase since 2007 when the minimum wage was $7.95.

“Our government continues to introduce minimum wages that are sustainable and predictable,” Labour Relations and Workplace Safety Minister Don Morgan said.  “Since 2007 our government has increased the minimum wage by more than 40 per cent.  We have also taken approximately 112,000 Saskatchewan residents off the provincial income tax roll, to help families keep more of their pay cheques in their pockets.”

Every year Saskatchewan’s minimum wage is calculated using an indexation formula.  In 2010, the government introduced the formula, which gives equal weight to changes to the Consumer Price Index and Average Hourly Wage for Saskatchewan.  This annual review provides regular and predictable changes to the minimum wage.

Increases are announced by June 30 and take effect on October 1 of each year.
