On November 1, 2013 the NL government announced that NL’s minimum wage rates will rise over the next two years:
- 2014 Increase. Effective October 1, 2014 the rate will increase by $.25 / hour to $10.25 / hour.
- 2015 Increase. Effective October 1, 2015 the rate will increase by another $.25 / hour, to $10.50 / hour.
The NL government rejected a review panel recommendation to index minimum wage increases annually. The government indicates it expects to conduct a further review of NL’s minimum wage in 2015.
