Newfoundland and Labrador is looking for input from stakeholders and members of the public as it reviews the minimum wage in the province.

Every two years, the government is legislated to conduct a review of the wage and the adjustment process.

This process provides the opportunity for the public, as well as employers, labour and government departments, to voice their concerns and present any pertinent commentary to help inform the review,” said Bernard Davis, Minister Responsible for Labour.

“Public engagement on this important issue helps to ensure the minimum wage rate adjustment process is relevant and responsive to the needs of the people in Newfoundland and Labrador. I encourage all interested parties to participate in this process.”


To participate and share your feedback, complete the online questionnaire available here. The questionnaire will be available online until March 16, 2024.

Written submissions will also be accepted until March 29, 2024.

Written submissions can be sent by mail to:

Minimum Wage Review
Department of Environment and Climate Change
4th Floor, Confederation Building
P.O. Box 8700
St. John’s, NL  A1B 4J6

They can also be sent via email: minimumwagereview@gov.nl.ca

The Labour Standards Regulations currently stipulate that, on April 1 of each year, the minimum wage shall change based on the percentage increase to the National Consumer Price Index. On April 1, 2024, the increase will bring the minimum wage in Newfoundland and Labrador to $15.60 per hour.
