Background

 

Moving forward, Saskatchewan’s minimum wage will be indexed. The minimum wage rate will now be calculated using changes in the Consumer Price Index (CPI), a collection of goods and services typically purchased by households, and the Average Hourly Wage in Saskatchewan for the previous year. This new approach is consistent with RCC’s position on future changes to the minimum wage and should ensure predictability for business owners in the province.

Beginning in 2015, changes to Saskatchewan’s minimum wage must be announced on or before June 30th of each year and will take effect on October 1st of the same year to provide employers with adequate time to plan for the change.
