Ontario has increased the general minimum wage for the fourth consecutive year, bringing the minimum wage up to $11.60 yesterday October 1, 2017.

This iss a part of Ontario’s plan for Fair Workplaces and Better Jobs. The general minimum wage will again increase to $14 on January 1, 2018, and to $15 on January 1, 2019, which would be followed by annual increases at the rate of inflation.


“Fairness and decency must continue to be the defining values of our workplaces. No one working full time should be struggling to put food on the table or buy clothing for their children. Increasing the minimum wage will create more fairness, opportunity and security for workers, while building a more stable and sustainable economy that also includes fair workplaces for everyone.” — Kevin Flynn, Minister of Labour
