Feedback sought via survey until Oct. 31
Nunavut residents can expect to a boost to the territory’s minimum wage to help match the territory’s high cost of living.
“We will have the highest minimum wage in Canada,” said Justice Minister Jeannie Hakongak Ehaloak on Thursday, Oct. 17, in an exchange with Hudson Bay MLA Allan Rumbolt on the first day of the fall sitting of the Nunavut legislature.
Nunavut’s Department of Justice is currently seeking feedback on the territorial minimum wage with a survey that can be completed until Oct. 31.
