Minimum Wage Set to Increase October 1

Press Release

July 2, 2024

On October 1, 2024, the minimum wage in Saskatchewan will increase to $15 an hour.

In 2022 the Government of Saskatchewan indicated it would make incremental increases to minimum wage over a two year period. In 2022 the minimum wage was increased from $11.81 to $13, followed by a $1 increase each year following until the minimum wage reached $15.

“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.”

In this year’s provincial budget there were no new taxes or tax increases. Since 2007, tax reductions have resulted in 112,000 low-income Saskatchewan residents no longer paying provincial income tax.

In 2007, the minimum wage in the province was $7.95. With the increase on October 1, the minimum wage will have increased by nearly 89 per cent.
