Ontario’s minimum wage workers are getting a raise this fall.
The Ministry of Labour, Immigration, Training and Skills plans to increase the hourly rate to $16.55 an hour starting on October 1.
It’s a 6.8 per cent increase from the current minimum wage of $15.50.
“Our government is putting workers in the driver’s seat,” said Labour Minister Monte McNaughton. “This latest increase is a fair and balanced approach that means more money in their pockets, so they can support their families and continue building a stronger Ontario for all of us.”
