There are no plans to defer a June 1 increase in British Columbia's minimum wage because of COVID-19, says the province's labour minister.
Harry Bains said Thursday he understands the economic threat the novel coronavirus poses to businesses in B.C., but the province plans to increase the minimum wage to $14.60 per hour from $13.85.
Bains said the provincial government's $5 billion pandemic relief plan includes numerous tax relief and payment deferment options to help businesses. The plan also includes $1.5 billion to support efforts to rebuild the provincial economy.
