Canadian payroll providers take note; the minimum wage in Alberta increases as of September 1st.

Most Alberta employers must pay their employees, including students and youth, at least the minimum wage. The minimum wage in Alberta is set out in the Employment Standards Regulation and is as follows:

  • an hourly minimum wage of $9.75 ($9.95 effective September 1, 2013) for most employees;
  • an hourly minimum wage of $9.05 for employees serving liquor as part of their regular job;
  • a weekly minimum wage of $389 ($397 effective September 1, 2013) for many salespersons, including land agents and certain professionals; and
  • a monthly minimum wage of $1,854 ($1,893 effective September 1, 2013) for domestic employees.

However, certain categories of employees are exempt from the minimum wage requirement in the Regulation.
