This is the second increase to the minimum wage this year, which follows an announcement made by the Premier in March that will see the minimum wage increased in three stages to $10.25 by May 1, 2012.

Non-hourly rates paid to camp leaders, live-in home support workers and resident caretakers will be adjusted at the same time in proportion to the increase in minimum wage.

Piece rates for hand-harvested crops listed in the employment standards regulation will remain unchanged pending the outcome of a review currently being undertaken by the Ministry of Labour, Citizens' Services and Open Government. The review is expected to be completed by the end of this year.
