PEI Minimum Wage

April 1 2017 - The Prince Edward Island minimum wage increased by 25 cents on April 1, to $11.25 per hour.

Workforce and Advanced Learning Minister Sonny Gallant said:

"Our government is pleased to approve this increase in minimum wage, which is intended to improve the quality of life for many Islanders and provide a boost to the economy. Increasing minimum wage puts more money into the economy and into the pockets of Islanders."

PEI's minimum wage has increased by 38% since 2008 compared with inflation of 11% in the same period. Prince Edward Island's rate also compares favourably with the other Atlantic provinces - $11 in New Brunswick and Newfoundland and Labrador (planned for October 1) and $10.85 in Nova Scotia (for experienced workers).

Carl Pursey, president of the Prince Edward Island Federation of Labour commented:

"Government is moving in the right direction increasing minimum wage. This is good news for people who are struggling to pay their bills, and it will put more money into the economy because people spend what they make."

The Employment Standards Act requires the Employment Standards Board to review the minimum wage rate each year. It makes recommendations on the minimum wage rate based on economic factors in the province and on input received from the public and stakeholders.
