As the government implemented its first of three minimum wage increases on October 1, 2022, that will ultimately bring the province’s base wage to $15.00 per hour, it has implemented the Transitional Support Program for Small Employers.
This program will provide small businesses with funding of $0.50 per hour for all hours worked at the minimum wage rate from October 1, 2022 to September 30, 2023. Eligible employers can receive up to a maximum of $20,800 but must apply before December 1, 2022. See press release and program details.
