The Alberta Government raised the provincial minimum wage to $12.20 per hour on October 1, 2016. It has also reaffirmed its intention to increase the minimum wage to $15 per hour by 2018.
Given the tremendous response we received on our first two surveys, the Alberta Chambers of Commerce and our network is conducting a third phase survey to identify the impacts to business as a result of the most recent increase and the anticipated impacts of a $15 per hour minimum wage by 2018.
The Government recognizes the ability of the chamber network to connect with members of the business community, and has asked us to provide and update on impacts to date and expected impacts of further changes to the minimum wage.
The input of our members is invaluable. The Alberta Chambers of Commerce collectively received over 2400 responses to Phase I and Phase ll of our Minimum Wage Survey. Our goal is to maintain this level of participation and we need your help to do it.
It takes approximately 10-15 minutes to complete: https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/minwagesurvey3
The survey will close on Friday, December 16, 2016.
We appreciate the participation of all of our members and thank you in advance for your help in conducting Phase IIl of the survey.
