Minimum wage is going up in Ontario this fall thanks to it being tied to the Consumer Price Index.

Ontario’s general minimum wage will grow from $11 per hour to $11.25 per hour, effective October 1st, 2015.

Minimum wage rates for jobs in special categories like liquor servers, homeworkers, students will also be increasing.

Liquor servers wage will go up to $9.80 per hour from $9.55, student wage will climb from $10.30 per hour to $10.55 per hour, and homeworker minimum wage will go up to $12.40 per hour from $12.10 per hour.

The government says the increase is the result of recent changes to the Employment Standards Act that tie minimum wage increases to Ontario’s Consumer Price Index.
