MINIMUM WAGE SURVEY - PHASE 3

 
   

 

Over the last year and a half, the Alberta Chambers of Commerce has conducted a series of surveys of business to determine the impacts that minimum wage increases have had to date and how businesses expect to deal with them going forward.

The Alberta Government is proceeding with its plans to increase Alberta's minimum wage. On October 1, 2016, Alberta’s minimum wage was increased to $12.20 and the Alberta Government reemphasized its intention to raise the minimum wage to $15 by 2018.

We feel it is important for businesses to provide feedback on the impact recent changes to the minimum wage have had and how businesses expect to deal with the increases in the future should they occur. This feedback enhances our ability to advocate on behalf of Alberta businesses.

The ACC thanks you for taking the time out of your busy schedule to participate in this survey. Please note that the survey should take 10 - 15 minutes to complete. We want to get the best data possible so most questions are mandatory.
