Minimum Wage increases in Ontario to $11.60 / hr. effective Oct. 1, 2017.

Median Wage required for Foreign Workers on a a CAREGIVER work permit is increased to $12.50 / hr.

05/30/2017

Today the Ontario government announced their proposed minimum wage increases as follows :
Ontario Minimum Wage :
Current to Sept. 30, 2017 - $11.40 / hr.
Oct. 1, 2017 to Dec. 31, 2017 - $11.60 / hr.
Jan. 1, 2018 to Dec 31, 2018 - $14.00 / hr.
Jan 1 2019 to Sept. 30, 2019 - $15.00 / hr.

Remember that this still needs must pass through the legislature!

Please note that Caregivers on the work visa program must be paid according to the MEDIAN Wage guide noted on the Job Bank website . Currently this rate is greater than the Minimum Wage as it reflects Stats Canada reports. These numbers have not yet been adjusted and probably won’t change until sometime in August as minimum wage increases Sept. 1st. No employee can be paid less than minimum wage. We will post the numbers when they are posted.

For those working on a Live-Out basis, most usually receive more than minimum wage now so you may not see a change . However, with the minimum wage increasing so much, caregivers / nannies and their employers should have a discussion in the fall about a possible increase & / or benefit. effective Jan. 1, 2018. This is a huge increase and will be a financial hardship for many families, so everyone should try to be fair and reasonable.

Just remember that no person can be paid less than minimum wage and any existing signed contract offering less than the new minimum becomes null and void legally. Employers MUST increase your wage effective on the date the increase takes effect. If you are looking to change jobs or hire a new Caregiver, keep these increases in mind when you are setting an hourly wage or Salary. A clause to review wages on a yearly basis is advisable..

Many changes are being proposed, but the following will affect those employed more than 5 years.

Paid Vacation
The proposed legislation would ensure that employees are entitled to three weeks of paid vacation after five years of service with the same employer.
If the proposed legislation passes, this proposal would come into force on January 1, 2018.

CORRECTION to Wage Increase Post !
Employers are not legally required to check the Median Wage Guide except on each anniversary date of when employment commenced ,and then implement the increase . Although the government recommends employers change the rate when the Median Wage increase is posted, there are no penalties to Employers as long as the wage is always at or above provincial Minimum Wage rates and changed to the current Median Wage listed on their caregiver's start date anniversary.

Thus the decision is with each employer. Caregivers should check Median Wage rates each year just before their anniversary date to insure they receive their increase as legislated.

Quick update on new Caregiver Program. Maximum LMIA Employer approval time for their Caregiver under the new program is now 2 YEARS. If they wish to keep their nanny/caregiver longer, they must apply for a new LMIA ( advertise/ post & pay the $1000.00 application fee) and the caregiver needs to apply for a new work permit. This means that Caregivers must start a conversation with their employer shortly after completing their first year . . .or if they want to change employers , start looking for a new employer because the process will take about 6 months for the employer to post & advertise the job, ESDC to process the LMIA and the Caregiver to receive a new work permit ( & Temp. Resident Visa) before the first one expires . . . and they lose legal status in Canada !
