On June 1, 2014, Ontario will increase the minimum wage from $10.25 to $11.00 per hour to reflect the rise in the Consumer Price Index (CPI) since the last minimum wage increase in 2010.
The Ontario government will also introduce new legislation to link future minimum wage increases to the CPI. Doing so will ensure increases are fair and predictable for both workers and businesses, and will keep the minimum wage up with the cost of living. Increases will be announced by April 1 and come into effect on October 1 under the proposed legislation.
