It is difficult to determine a specific amount that would be considered a “low salary” in Canada, as this can vary based on a number of factors such as the cost of living in a particular region, an individual’s personal expenses and financial obligations, and the specific job and industry in which an individual is working.
According to Statistics Canada, the median hourly wage for all employees in Canada was $25.09 in 2020. However, this figure does not take into account factors such as the number of hours worked per week or the specific job duties and responsibilities of an individual employee.
