New Brunswick Minimum Wage

September 10 2016 - Launching the consultation exercise on the New Brunswick Minimum Wage, Post-Secondary Education, Training and Labour Minister Donald Arseneault said:

"It is important to ensure that we are protecting all of our workers and are in line with the standards and best practices of other Canadian jurisdictions. Public input on our proposals is critical to ensure that we achieve the right balance in addressing employer and employee rights and responsibilities."

The public were invited to participate in consultations on indexing the minimum wage to inflation, employment protection for youth and coverage under the Employment Standards Act.

Donald Arseneault added:

"Increasing the minimum wage will give a boost to those hardworking New Brunswickers that need it most. These types of efforts will help stimulate the economy and make life more affordable for families. We look forward to hearing the views of New Brunswickers on the best options for indexing the minimum wage, so we can move forward on this commitment and provide certainty to employers and employees."

New Brunswick's minimum wage has been increased twice since 2014, reaching $10.65 per hour on April 1 2016. The provincial government is committed to further increasing it to $11 per hour by 2017 and then indexing it to the rate of inflation.
