The Ontario Living Wage Network devised our calculation methodology in collaboration with the Canadian Centre for Policy Alternatives B.C and Ontario offices, who were responsible for creating the standardized "National Living Wage Framework"

For a sortable table of all active living wage rates, visit Living Wage By Region.

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