Effective October 1, 2016, Saskatchewan’s minimum wage will increase by 22 cents to $10.72 per hour.

This is the second change to the minimum wage under Saskatchewan’s minimum wage indexation formula. The minimum wage rate is calculated using changes in the Consumer Price Index (CPI) and the Average Hourly Wage in Saskatchewan for the previous year. This approach is consistent with RCC’s position on future changes to the minimum wage and should ensure predictability for business owners in the province.
