Increase to Minimum Wage

Starting October 1, 2017, Alberta’s minimum wage will increase from $12.20 per hour to $13.60 per hour. Anyone that has a current appointment with rates applicable to the AB Employment Standards Code will automatically be updated in Peoplesoft to reflect the increase.

As "75% of Step 1" may be be less than minimum wage at some grades, you can not pay less and will need to adjust the percentage accordingly. If you have any questions, please contact employmentservices@ualberta.ca.
