What is the minimum wage in Canada?

Minimum wage rates in Canada are assigned based on the jurisdiction in which the employee works. The minimum wage ranges from CAD 11.70 (USD 9.38) in New Brunswick province to CAD 16 (USD 12.83) in Nunavut, and they are generally revised annually. Tipped employees in Quebec may earn as little as CAD 10.80 (USD 8.66) per hour.  


There is no requirement to pay student interns, but should you decide to employ and pay student interns they are entitled to at least minimum wage. A local PEO can work with you to ensure that you are compliant with minimum wage laws across the various employee types and locations for your company.
