Newfoundland and Labrador is conducting a review of its minimum wage.

Joan Burke, Minister of Human Resources, Labour and Employment, said the Labour Relations Agency will carry out a review of the wage this fall.

“The current wage will be re-examined in terms of adequacy and impact for affected stakeholders, including a comparative analysis with other jurisdictions, particularly those in Atlantic Canada,” said Burke.
