Ontario premier expects to announce minimum wage hike

Premier Kathleen Wynne says the Ontario government will soon announce how high it intends to increase the minimum wage, which has been frozen for the past four years.

Wynne says she likes the recommendation from an advisory panel to use the inflation rate to determine future increases in the wage--currently $10.25 cents an hour.

Government sources says there will be an announcement later this week to hike the minimum wage based on the inflation rates going back to 2010.

Wynne wouldn't confirm the size of the increase at an Ottawa news conference yesterday when reporters tried repeatedly to find out what the new minimum wage would be. (The Canadian Press)
