Minimum wage is a provincially imposed lower limit on wage rates. It is the lowest hourly, daily or monthly remuneration that employers may legally pay to workers. Most employees are eligible for minimum wage, whether they are full-time, part-time, casual employees, or are paid an hourly rate, commission, piece rate, flat rate or salary. However, there are jobs that are exempt from the minimum wage provisions.
