Effective October 1, 2015, the government of Saskatchewan will increase the minimum wage across the province from $10.20 per hour to $10.50 per hour.

The Saskatchewan government reviews its minimum wage yearly, using an indexation formula based on the Consumer Price Index and the Average Hourly Wage from the previous year. Increases are subject to approval and are announced by June 30 of each year, with changes taking effect October 1 of the same year.

This increase to the province’s minimum wage will be the seventh one since 2007 and will benefit almost 24,000 minimum wage earners in Saskatchewan’s workforce.
