Starting October 1, 2020, the minimum wage in Saskatchewan will increase from $11.32 per hour to $11.45 per hour.
After its annual review of the province’s minimum wage, the government of Saskatchewan calculated the 13-cent increase using an indexation formula that gives equal weight to changes to the Consumer Price Index and the average hourly wage within Saskatchewan.
All provincially-regulated employers with employees paid minimum wage are required to make the mandatory adjustments on and after October 1, 2020.
