Effective October 1, 2015, minimum wage in Ontario will increase from $11.00 to $11.25 an hour. Minimum wage increases will also be given to those employed in special categories, such as students ($10.55), homeworkers ($12.40), and liquor servers ($9.80), among others.
This increase comes on the heels of British Columbia’s minimum wage increase announcement made earlier this month. After this increase, Ontario will have the second highest minimum wage in Canada, behind the North West Territories which will see an increase to its minimum wage in June to $12.50.
