For members with stores in Manitoba: Manitoba Minimum Wage Increases to $11.35 on October 1, 2018

Effective October 1, 2018 the Manitoba minimum wage will increase 20 cents per hour, from the current rate of $11.15 to the new rate of $11.35, reflecting an inflation rate of 1.6 percent.

In 2017 the government passed legislation that now indexes minimum wage with the rate of inflation, a fully transparent and predictable formula supported by RCC.
