The provincial government has announced Wednesday that the minimum wage will increase to $11.70 per hour on April 1, from the current rate of $11.50 per hour.
“Our government is committed to energizing the private sector and creating the environment that our businesses need to succeed,” said Post-Secondary Education, Training and Labour Minister Trevor Holder.
“We have established predictable minimum wage increases to benefit both employers and employees. This allows New Brunswick businesses to be better prepared for increases when they occur.”
The minimum wage rate is indexed to New Brunswick’s consumer price index, rounded to the nearest five cents.
