Manitoba’s minimum wage goes up to $10.45 an hour Oct. 1, the province said today.
It’s an increase of 20 cents over the current minimum wage.
"This increase will help the lowest wage earners in Manitoba and keeps pace with expected increases in the consumer price index," Entrepreneurship, Training and Trade Minister Peter Bjornson said in a release.
The increase follows input from the province’s Labour Management Review Committee and separate recommendations from its labour and business representatives.
The province said with the increase, Manitoba's minimum wage will be the third highest in Canada.
