Ontario’s minimum wage is set to rise — again.
As of October 1st, minimum wage will increase from $11.25 an hour to $11.40 an hour, according to a release issued Friday by the provincial government.
Students under 18, working less than 28 hours a week, will see their minimum wage increase from $10.55 to $10.70, while those who work in their own homes for an employer will see their minimum wage increase from $12.40 to $12.55 an hour.
The province announces the new minimum wage before April 1 each year to give businesses time to adjust before it takes effect six months later.
The government passed legislation in 2014 to tie annual increases in the minimum wage to the rate of inflation for Ontario.
