Saskatchewan Minimum Wage
October 1 2016 - Saskatchewan's minimum wage increased to $10.72 per hour on October 1, 2016 -
the eighth increase since 2007.
The change is in line with the Government of Saskatchewan's a commitment to review the hourly minimum wage on a year-to-year basis.
Labour Relations and Workplace Safety Minister Don Morgan said:
"Indexing the minimum wage means people don't fall behind. This increase is just one way our Government helps low wage earners."
The increase affects about 23,000 minimum wage earners in the province - half under the age of 25.
Don Morgan said:
"Increases to the minimum wage, when combined with other supports and tax exemptions, help ease the financial burden for low-income earners,
By annually reviewing the minimum wage, we have created a predictable system for employees and business owners."
