The general minimum wage rate in the Yukon is set to increase from $9.27 per hour to $10.30 on May 1.

On April 1, 2012, the minimum wage rate in the province increased from $9 per hour to $9.27.

The rate will continue to be indexed by any increases to the annual Whitehorse Consumer Price Index, according to the territory’s government.

The Yukon Employment Standards Board will hold a public review in the fall seeking feedback on the $10.30 minimum wage rate and will make a recommendation should further changes to the rate be deemed necessary, the Yukon government said.
