Minimum Wages in Atlantic Canada

January 3, 2018

A new Report Card from the Atlantic Provinces Economic Council examines who earns the minimum wage and concludes that Atlantic businesses would benefit from predictability and consistency in setting minimum wages.

The Report Card estimates that 64,000 Atlantic Canadians earned the minimum wage in their province in 2016, an increase from 53,000 a decade earlier. This means 6.6% of Atlantic employees earned the minimum wage, slightly above the national average of 6.3%.
