2022 Rates

In 2022 the OLWN transitioned to a system of 10 centrally calculated living wage rates, all done by our staff with assistance from local organizers. 

Calculating Ontario's Living Wage Rates

2021 Reports

Prior to 2022, local living wage rates were calculated and peer-reviewed on an annual basis where possible. Some calculations were completed by a local organizing group, while others were conducted entirely by OLWN staff.

    The table which displays the historical living wage has a comment below that states “Due to changes in methodology over time, these rates are not directly comparable, please use accordingly.” but does not indicate what the changes are. Tables should be done separate by methodology with description of methodology in footnote or comment. There is no indication of how many hours a person has to work at the $/hr.

    I do not see any calculations. It is just old results and reports.
