Minimum Wage Jumps Again


The minimum wage for workers in Canada’s smallest province will be given a boost starting today, Oct. 1. The $0.30 jump is the second hike this year and will bring P.E.I’s hourly rate to $9.

The province’s minimum wage was first raised from $8.40 to $8.70 on June 1.

The minimum wage in Nova Scotia also increases today, Oct. 1, shifting to $9.65 per hour for experienced workers versus $9.15 for inexperienced labour.

These most recent hikes come after workers in New Brunswick saw their wages increased to $9 an hour just one month ago, with that rate also scheduled to jump a full dollar an hour to $10, on Sept. 1, 2011.
