Alberta, one of the lowest payers of minimum wage in Canada, is becoming one of the highest.
As part of a plan to increase Alberta’s minimum wage to $15 an hour by 2018, the province announced Monday the current minimum wage will increase from $10.20 to $11.20 on October 1st.
When that kicks in, only Ontario ($11.25 an hour on Oct. 1) and the Northwest Territories (currently at $12.50 an hour) will pay more to those who earn the least.
Saskatchewan will then be the lowest, at $10.20 an hour.
