Quebec’s new minimum wage increase doesn’t even cover inflation

Minimum wage in the province will increase to $14.25 on May 1, and $11.40 for tipped employees.

Minimum wage in Quebec will be increased to $14.25 on May 1, a rise of $0.75 per hour. This corresponds to an increase in the minimum wage of 5.5%, which is less than the current rate of inflation in Quebec of 6.7%.

The minimum wage for tipped employees in Quebec will be increased $0.60 to $11.40 per hour.

A cross-Canada survey last October found that almost half the country believes that the minimum wage should be tied the level of inflation.

The new minimum wage increase for regular and tipped employees does not even cover inflation in Quebec.
