Starting October 1, 2019, the minimum wage in Saskatchewan will increase from $11.06 per hour to $11.32 per hour.
After its annual review of the province’s minimum wage, the Government of Saskatchewan calculated the 26-cent increase using an indexation formula that has been in place since 2011. The formula considers the previous minimum wage, the average hourly wage within Saskatchewan, and annual changes in the Consumer Price Index.
All provincially-regulated employers with employees paid the minimum wage are required to make the mandatory adjustments by October 1, 2019.
