Ontario Continuing to Increase Minimum Wage

Province Committed to Providing Fairness for Workers, Predictability for Business

Queens Park - As announced earlier this year, Ontario is raising the general minimum wage from $11 to $11.25 per hour, effective today October 1, 2015. The increase is a result of recent changes to the Employment Standards Act, 2000 and a recommedendation from the Minimum Wage Advisory Panel to tie the annual increase to the Consumer Price Index.

Minimum wage rates for certain jobs and/or employees such as liquor servers, homeworkers, and students are also increasing at the same time.

Increasing the minimum wage in a fair and predictable manner is part of the government’s economic plan for Ontario. The four-part plan is building Ontario up by investing in people's talents and skills, building new public infrastructure like roads and transit, creating a dynamic, supportive environment where business thrives and building a secure savings plan so everyone can afford to retire.
