Saskatchewan’s Minimum Wage To Increase In October

Released on June 5, 2020

The provincial government has announced that the minimum wage will increase to $11.45 per hour on October 1, 2020.  This will be the 12th increase to minimum wage since 2007.

“We have established sustainable and predictable minimum wage increases,” Labour Relations and Workplace Safety Minister Don Morgan said.  “This helps families plan ahead and creates an environment for new workers to enter the workforce.”

Saskatchewan’s minimum wage is calculated using an indexation formula, which helps ensure that all people benefit from the economic prosperity of the province.

The indexation formula gives equal weight to changes to the Consumer Price Index and Average Hourly Wage for Saskatchewan.
