As Canadians come together tomorrow to celebrate this great nation, residents in this province have extra reason to celebrate.
As of July 1, the minimum wage in this province will be raised to 10 dollars.
This 50 cent increase is the final one in the provinces commitment to raising the minimum wage in this province to 10 dollars.
