Ontario Minimum Wage Increase Now in Effect

Ontario employers are reminded that the general minimum wage in Ontario increased on October 1, 2016 to $11.40 per hour, up from $11.25 per hour.  The liquor server minimum wage also increased to $9.90 per hour and the student minimum wage is now $10.70 per hour. The Ontario minimum wage is indexed to Ontario’s Consumer Price Index so future increases will be published on or before April 1 and will come into effect on the following October 1.
