The Quebec government has announced that the minimum wage in Quebec will increase by 3.1%, or $0.40 per hour, to a total of $13.50 as of May 2021.

Changes will go into effect exactly one year after the government last raised the minimum wage salary to $13.10.

According to the press release, this increase will affect 287,000 Quebecers, 164,700 of whom are women.

As for employees who work in industries that accept tips, the minimum wage will increase 35 cents to $10.80 an hour.

"As you know, the health crisis has brought its share of challenges for both employees and employers," says Jean Boulet, Minister of Labor, Employment and Social Solidarity.

"We have considered the various issues encountered this year by companies and workers in determining the increase in the minimum wage that I am proposing today. This increase would allow workers and businesses to participate in collective enrichment."
