Minimum wage to increase to $11/hour in N.S. on April 1st

Minimum wage in Nova Scotia is going up fifteen cents per hour on April 1st.

The province says that's the increase based on the 2017 national Consumer Price Index, as a result of the Minimum Wage Review Committee's annual review.

That brings minimum wage to $11 per hour, while someone with less than three months of experience moves to $10.50 per hour.

Government says the committee will be reviewing the current formula for minimum wage adjustment in the spring.

The Atlantic premiers have committed to looking at options for harmonization of the minimum wage and the approach for making adjustments.
