Effective April 1, 2016, the New Brunswick government will increase its minimum wage from $10.30 per hour to $10.65 per hour.
New legislation, the Regulatory Accountability and Reporting Act, reflects an agreement by the three Maritime Provinces to align their respective minimum wage increases.
“By working together as a Maritime region, we can create jobs and deliver better services,” said Premier Brian Gallant. “Aligning the timing of the minimum wage increases will reduce costs for businesses operating in more than one province by minimizing the number of times they have to make administrative changes.”
