Every May 1st the Provinces announce what the minimum wages in the Province are going to be until next May 1st.
Of course, every May 1st other two things happen: Employers complaints because the change may affect their businesses…. and employees complaints because the change will not affect their pockets as much as they would like!
Today CBC Canada published a table with this information and I wanted to share it with you.

- To calculate the “in hand” amount, you can use the Eaton website
- Each Province has a different way to tax your income.
