PEI Minimum Wage

April 1 2018 - The Prince Edward Island minimum wage increased by 30 cents to $11.55 per hour on April 1, 2018.

The Minimum Wage Order sets the minimum wage rate, which is the least amount of money an employer must pay an employee for each hour of work.

Workforce and Advanced Learning Minister Sonny Gallant said:

"Business confidence in Prince Edward Island is high, our economy is the fastest growing in the region and more Islanders are working Given this historic growth, it is very important that all Islanders benefit from improved economic conditions. Increasing the minimum wage is one way to ensure more money goes back into the pockets of Islanders."

PEI's minimum wage is the highest in the Atlantic Provinces.

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.
