Minimum wage increases in three of four Atlantic provinces

The minimum wage has gone up today in three of the four Atlantic provinces.

New Brunswick has instituted a one-dollar increase, bringing its rate to the highest in the region at $13.75 per hour.

A 50-cent jump in Newfoundland and Labrador means the rate in Canada’s most easterly province currently stands at $13.70 per hour.

Nova Scotia’s minimum wage went up 25 cents to hit $13.60 per hour.

The rate did not increase in Prince Edward Island, where the government announced last week that the minimum wage would increase from $13.70 to $14.50 on Jan. 1.

Both P.E.I. and Newfoundland and Labrador plan further increases that will see the rate hit $15 per hour in October 2023, while Nova Scotia plans to reach $15 an hour in October 2024.
