fACT Sheet: Minimum Wage Revisited

April 17, 2024


In June 2016, the Edmonton Social Planning Council released a Minimum Wage fACT Sheet providing an overview of the minimum wage, the impacts of increasing it, and countering some common myths and misconceptions. This was published when the Alberta government was gradually increasing the minimum wage in yearly increments between 2015 and 2018 to $15 per hour. Since that timeframe, the minimum wage has remained frozen. 

This fACT Sheet will provide an update to the situation and provide recommendations for a path forward to meaningfully improve the situation of low wage earners.
