The Living Wage Program is an Ontario-wide program, designed to help businesses attract and retain employees, particularly for low-paying jobs. The goal of the program is to combat working poverty by ensuring that employees can make ends meet where they live. By incorporating expenses that a worker must cover, such as shelter, food, transportation and more, our living wages are much closer to reality than a politically set minimum wage. We understand that the implementation of this program does not look the same for every employer, thus, the Ontario Living Wage Network created a tier-based implementation system, that allows employers to enter the program at a level that meets their current needs.
