Effective Oct. 1, minimum wage in Saskatchewan will be increasing from $11.81 per hour to $13.
Back in May, the Government of Saskatchewan announced a plan to have minimum wage increased to $15 per hour by 2024. The plan includes increases to $14 on Oct. 1, 2023, and $15 on Oct. 1, 2024. This goes away from the indexation formula the government had been using to calculate minimum wage.
