NOKTogether | Support for essential workers

The federal and provincial governments have confirmed plans to cost share wage top-ups for essential workers.

The Government of Canada will provide up to $3 billion in support to increase the wages of low-income, essential workers. Each province or territory will determine which workers would be eligible for support, and how much support they will receive.

“Workers are risking their health to provide us with essential care and services, and we need to make sure that they are paid properly for the work they do every day,” said Prime Minister Justin Trudeau.
