Edmonton Living Wage 2019 Update

Posted: Oct 14, 2019

The 2019 living wage has gone up $0.03 due to slightly higher overall family expenses and lower income from government benefits.

An increase from the 2018 living wage was expected, but is smaller than anticipated due to programs that decrease costs for families, and the indexing of government transfer programs — critical for helping working families stay afloat. Without these changes, the increase from 2018 to 2019 for Edmonton’s living wage would have been much higher.
