Saskatchewan’s Minimum Wage Increase To Take Effect In October

The minimum wage in Saskatchewan will increase to $11.32 an hour from $11.06 an hour on October 1, 2019. The increase was calculated based on an indexation formula the province has used since 2011.

Increases to the basic and spousal income tax exemptions, the dependent child tax credit and the Saskatchewan low income tax credit allow the province’s minimum wage earners and other low income earners to keep more of their money. Saskatchewan’s legislation provides for an annual review based on changes to the Consumer Price Index and the average hourly wage for the previous year. Any changes to the minimum wage are to be announced by June 30. Changes take effect October 1.
