As of October 1, the province's minimum wage will increase to $11.81 per hour, an increase that was announced in June 2021.
This is the 13th increase to the minimum wage, for a total increase of over 48 per cent, since 2007.
Every year Saskatchewan's minimum wage is calculated using an indexation formula that gives equal weight to changes to the Consumer Price Index and Average Hourly Wage for Saskatchewan.
The government introduced an indexation formula in 2010. Increases are announced by June 30 and take effect on October 1 of each year.
