It's Living Wage Week, and first things first...we have 5 brand new calculations:
|Hastings Prince Edward||$17.35|
And here are the updated rates:
|Leeds Grenville Lanark||$17.21||2019||$17.07||0.82%|
|Perth and Huron||$17.55||2019||$17.44||0.63%|
* Halton Region's previous calculation used a different family model, so the previous and current rates are not directly comparable
There are also several events across the province to mark the week:

Thank you to all our local organizers who worked to make this year's Living Wage Week the largest yet: 15 updated calculations and 5 new rates. The map is steadily getting filled in.
But #LivingWageWeek is also about taking extra time to recognize and celebrate our certified living wage employers. Be sure to check in on our twitter / facebook / website for this week's developments and celebrations.
