| 1 minutes

This morning, Premier John Horgan announced changes to BC’s minimum wage. The current hourly minimum wage of $11.35 was implemented on September 15, 2017. This rate will increase as follows:

  • June 1, 2018 will increase by $1.30 to $12.65
  • June 1, 2019 will increase by $1.20 to $13.85
  • June 1, 2020 will increase by $0.75 to $14.60
  • June 1, 2021 will increase by $0.60 to $15.20

As reported by the provincial government (here), the gradual increases are intended to “allow employers time to plan and absorb additional labour costs.”

The announced increases pertains only to the hourly minimum wage. It is anticipated that increases will also be introduced for farm workers, liquor servers, and other workers who have separate minimum wages under the Employment Standards Regulation (B.C. Reg. 396/95).
