Canada’s westernmost province has announced plans to raise its minimum wage with changes expected to come into force in mid-September.

British Columbia Premier, Christy Clark confirmed today that the minimum wage will rise by 50 cents to $11.35 an hour – liquor servers are also expected to see a 50 cents rise, taking their rate to $10.10 per hour.

The raise is the second part of a two-stage plan which Clark first announced last May and means B.C. will soon have the fifth-highest minimum wage in Canada, behind Alberta,  , Nanavut, Northwest Territories and Ontario.

The ministry also said it has plans to announce more details on increases in the daily rates for live-in home support and camp leaders, monthly rates for resident caretakers and the pay rates affecting farm workers harvesting certain fruits and vegetables.
