Minimum Wage Increase

Raising the minimum wage helps build a stronger province for everybody in BC, that's why we're raising the minimum wage to $15.65. Since 2018, we’ve been regularly increasing the minimum wage, which was $11.35 an hour when this work began. Close to 400,000 people have benefited from these increases, the majority of whom are women, immigrants and youth – people who bear the brunt of low-wage labour. Increasing the minimum wage helps tackle inequality and make life more affordable.

Under the BC Liberals, our minimum wage was among the lowest in Canada. Now, it's the highest of any province and our government is working to make sure workers don't get left behind
