Minimum Wage Increasing April 1


Nova Scotia’s minimum wage is increasing in line with the cost of living.

Government accepted the Minimum Wage Review Committee’s recommendation to increase the minimum wage by 10 cents, to $10.70 an hour on April 1.     

The minimum wage for someone who has less than three months’ experience will also increase by 10 cents an hour, to $10.20.

Minimum wage rates are adjusted annually, and are based on the previous year’s national Consumer Price Index.

The Minimum Wage Review Committee, which includes employee and employer representatives, filed its report with the minister on Jan. 6. The report is online at www.novascotia.ca/lae/pubs .
