Public Service Announcement 

Minimum wage increase 

This is a reminder to all Nunavummiut and businesses operating in the territory that on April 1, 2016, the minimum wage will increase to $13 per hour. 

With this increase, Nunavut will once again have the highest minimum wage in Canada. This will also bring the wage to an appropriate amount to better reflect the high cost of living in Nunavut. 

For more information about the minimum wage increase, please contact the Nunavut Labour Standards Compliance Office at 1-867-975-6322 or toll free at 1-877-806-8402.
