Public Advisory: Minimum Wage Review Committee Seeks Public Input

The Minimum Wage Review Committee invites stakeholders and members of the general public to provide input into the current review of the minimum wage. The minimum wage rate can have impacts on employees, employers and the overall economy.

The committee is seeking input from a wide range of stakeholders and invites members of the public to participate by completing an online questionnaire that will take approximately 10 minutes to complete, or by submitting a written submission. Interested groups or individuals are invited to visit engagenl.ca external link for options to engage with the committee.

On September 5, 2019 the Minister of Advanced Education, Skills and Labour announced the appointment of an Independent Minimum Wage Review Committee to solicit targeted stakeholder input and report to the minister with observations, findings and recommendations on the current adjustment process for setting the minimum wage and the wage rate.
