Effective October 1, 2017, Saskatchewan’s minimum wage will increase from $10.72 to $10.96 per hour. This will be the ninth increase to the minimum wage since 2007. The minimum wage in Saskatchewan is indexed annually. This means the minimum wage rate is calculated using changes in the Consumer Price Index (CPI), a collection of goods and services typically purchased by households, and the Average Hourly Wage in Saskatchewan for the previous year.
Changes to the minimum wage must be announced on or before June 30th of each year and will take effect October 1st of the same year.
