Prince Edward Island’s minimum wage will increase by 15 cents to $13.00 per hour as of April 1st, 2021. The minimum overtime wage rate will continue to be 1.5 times the employee’s regular wage.
In general, an employee subject to the Employment Standards Act must receive at least the minimum rate of hourly pay or equivalent.
Employees who do piecework (paid by the amount they produce and not by the hour) cannot be paid less for piece work than they would have earned at the minimum wage for the number of hours worked.
