Fair Wage Schedule prepared by: Labour Standards, Workplace Directorate, Labour Program, Employment and Social Development Canada based on wage rates set in the Fair Wage Schedules established under the Yukon Employment Standards Act.

Contractors should note:

  1. that the Fair Wages and Hours of Labour Act was repealed. Coming into force date is to be determined by order of the Governor in Council. The repeal will not affect any rights or obligations acquired or incurred under a contract or agreement to which the Act applied. All federal construction contracts containing a fair wage clause will continue to be governed by provisions of the Act for the duration of that contract; and
  2. that in carrying out any of the work contemplated by this contract, the contractor is also subject to any applicable provincial or territorial laws and regulations; and
  3. that overtime must be paid according to provincial or territorial legislation concerning hours of work at a rate equal to at least one and one-half times the fair wage rate; and
  4. that schedule rates are "straight" wages and do not include compensation in the form of benefits (for example, medical, dental or pension plans); and
  5. that in the event of a complaint under the Fair Wages and Hours of Labour Act, if the occupation of the complainant is not on the posted schedule, the Labour Program inspector will assign the most similar occupation from the schedule by comparing the national occupational classification (NOC) code and the job description that best defines the work actually done by the complainant.

For information concerning these schedules and The Fair Wages and Hours of Labour Act under which they are developed, or to lodge a complaint, contact your nearest Labour Program district office or call 1-800-O-CANADA (1-800-622-6232).
