Every Canadian deserves a fair shot. Part-time, temporary,
and low-wage Canadian employees still struggle financially.
On April 1, 2023, the federal minimum wage will rise from $15.55 to $16.65 to match inflation.
The Consumer Price Index grew 6.8% in 2022, making life more affordable for the 26,000 Canadians
who earn less than the present amount. Federally regulated private-sector firms
must update their payroll records with the new rate by April 1 to pay workers and
interns accurately. Employers must pay the greater provincial or territorial minimum wage.
