Last month, Ontario Premier Kathleen Wynne announced that the provincial minimum wage will increase to $15/hour by January 1, 2019.
The change to the minimum wage will be phased in over an 18 month, rising to $14/hour by January 1, 2018.
Wynne states, “People are working longer, jobs are less secure, benefits are harder to come by and protections are fewer and fewer,” said Wynne. “In a time of change like this, when the very nature of work is being transformed, we need to make certain that our workers are treated fairly.”
