MANITOBA – Minimum wage is set to increase tomorrow, October 1 to $11.65.

The increase is a 30 cent boost from its previous $11.35 and is based on Manitoba’s 2018 inflation rate of 2.5 per cent.

“We continue to provide predictable and sustainable increases to Manitoba’s minimum wage, which achieves the right balance benefitting both employees and employers,” said Minister Blaine Pedersen. “Regular minimum wage increases improve wages for working Manitobans and provide predictability for small and medium-sized businesses that is consistent with Manitoba’s Consumer Price Index.”
