The Conference Board of Canada says businesses anticipate that their average base wage increases for non-unionized employees will be around 2.4 per cent in Saskatchewan next year.
That's slightly above the national expectation of 2.2 per cent. The Board says that there continues to be widespread uncertainty about Canada's economic climate and business conditions. The lowest increase will be in Alberta at 1.4 per cent. Prior to 2015, Alberta had the highest increases in the country. Workers in Manitoba are expected to see the highest increases next year at 2.7 per cent.
