Ontario To Increase Minimum Wage

Ontario is  increasing the general minimum wage for the fourth consecutive year, which will bring the wage up to $11.60 from $11.40 this fall.  Minister of Labour Kevin Flynn made the announcement in Toronto. The increase will come into effect on October 1, 2017, and continues the government’s efforts to ensure more workers and their families are able to benefit from the province’s growing economy. As a result, full-time minimum wage earners in Ontario are now taking home $2,782 more per year than they did just four years ago.
