On April 1 and again on October 1, 2023, Manitoba will be increasing the minimum wage.
Currently, the minimum wage is $13.50 per hour but effective April 1 it will be increased by $0.65 to $1415 per hour. On October 1 an additional $1.15 increase will bring the provincial minimum wage to $15.30 per hour.
“To balance the financial realities of Manitoba workers and the economic challenges for small businesses, we implemented a phased-in approach that will help more Manitobans get ahead,” said Labour and Immigration Minister Jon Reyes.
Future increases are legislated to follow an inflation-tied formula to ensure that minimum wage is tied to economic indicators to maintain purchasing power, stability and predictability for businesses, noted the minister.
