Effective today, October 1, 2021, the minimum wage rates in Ontario have increased.

Minimum wage is the lowest wage rate an employer can pay an employee. Most employees are eligible for minimum wage, whether they are full-time, part-time, casual employees, or are paid an hourly rate, commission, piece rate, flat rate or salary. Some employees have jobs that are exempt from the minimum wage provisions of the Employment Standards Act. See Industries and jobs with Employment Standards Act exemptions and/or special rules for information on these job categories.
Compliance with the minimum wage requirements is determined on a pay period basis.
Use the Employment Standards Self-Service Tool to check compliance with rules on minimum wage and other employment standards entitlements.
