Minimum Wage Increase Effective June 1, 2024

The Government of British Columbia is increasing the provincial minimum wage, effective June 1, 2024. The change is as follows:

June 1, 2023 June 1, 2024
Minimum Wage $16.75/hour $17.40/hour

Starting next week (and targeting June 15 pay), the ISC will be processing increases to hourly rates that are below the new minimum wage to the new rate of $17.40/hour in Workday.

If your faculty or department has salaried students whose appointments are already in the system, please ensure that their salary is at least equivalent to the minimum wage for the number of hours they work.

As well, moving forward, please ensure that all appointments are reflective of the new BC minimum wage.
