The Saskatchewan minimum wage will increase to $15 an hour starting October 1, 2024.

In 2022, the provincial government indicated they would make increases to the minimum wage over a two-year period. That year, the minimum wage increased from $11.81 to $13, followed by a one-dollar increase each year until the $15 minimum wage was reached. This marks a nearly 89 percent jump since 2007 when the minimum wage was $7.97.

"Increasing minimum wage is one way we are supporting workers in this province," Labour Relations and Workplace Safety Minister Don McMorris said. "Saskatchewan also continues to have among the lowest personal taxes in Canada, which makes it a great place to live, work, and raise a family."

This year's provincial budget did not include new taxes or tax increases.
