A reminder to employers, effective June 1, 2019:
- general minimum wage will increase to $13.85 per hour, an increase of $1.20 per hour
- liquor server minimum wage will increase to $12.70 per hour, an increase of $1.30 per hour
These increases are the result of recommendations from the independent Fair Wages Commission, established in 2017 to advise government on an “approach to raising provincial minimum wages with increases that are regular, measured, and predictable.”
By June 2021, BC’s general minimum wage will reach at least $14.20 per hour and the liquor server wage will be phased out. For more information, please click here.
