Reminder of minimum wage increase

As announced last fall, Prince Edward Island’s minimum wage will increase twice in 2023. The first increase will be by 80 cents on January 1, 2023 to $14.50 per hour. The second increase will be 50 cents on October 1, 2023 to $15.00 per hour.

The Employment Standards Board reviews minimum wage annually and provides their recommendation to government after the review is complete.
