The minimum wage in Saskatchewan will be increasing this October 1st to $15 an hour.

It has been two years since the provincial government said they would make increases to the minimum wage over a two-year period. In 2022, the minimum wage increased from $11.81 to $13, followed by a one-dollar increase each year until the $15 minimum wage is reached. This is nearly an 89 percent jump since 2007, when the minimum wage was $7.97.

"Increasing minimum wage is one way we are supporting workers in this province," said Don McMorris, Minister of Labour Relations and Workplace Safety. "Saskatchewan also continues to have among the lowest personal taxes in Canada, which makes it a great place to live, work, and raise a family."

The 2024 provincial budget did not include new taxes or tax increases.
