Income Tax , EI ( Employment Insurance ) , CPP ( Canada Pension Plan ) will be cut from the above gross salary you get.

1. Income Tax is usually very little when you make minimum wage. Kind of like TDS , Income Tax Deducted At Source in India.
You get almost all of it back , when you file your IT return if you are making a minimum wage through tax credits & tax rebates. Plus some more in lot of other credits like HST credit etc.

2. CPP is Canada's equivalent to India's PF - Provident Fund. 4.95 % is paid by you & 4.95 % is paid by your employer towards your pension - CPP - Canada Pension Plan.

3. EI is called Employment Insurance, but basically its Unemployment Insurance. So in case you lose your job or are laid off, the gov. pays you while you are unemployed.
You generally get 55 % of your salary for about 1 yr , depending on your province & how many hours you have worked, when you get laid off. There are certain minimum criteria, you have to fulfill. If you have worked less hours, you will get paid for a less time, so its not always a year.

EI of 1.9 % is deducted from your salary.

So basically 3 major deductions on your salary

1. Income Tax - Depending on how much you make & the Province.
2. EI - 1.9 %
3. CPP - 4.9 %

Powers that be have been so kind to us, the poor soul. The minimum wage in BC is set to increase by 20 cents to $10.45. They have set it up to inflation. Now, the Almighty Legislative need to tell us what constitutes the real inflation for a poor man. Looks like Gods are not listening.

Eff the poor man.

I am surprised its only $ 10.25 in BC , especially Vancouver , when that's the most expensive city to live in Canada, atleast RE & rent wise.

If I could only know, Mr. Adamthorat.

I've been hunting homes these days for upgrade. Not a single frigging home worth its salt (3 level) in a decent 'suburban' neighborhood is less than 600k. Vancouver proper start from a million, no less. Anything less than that is rundown. Go figure. At times, I feel like crying and abusing my fate to ever left GTA. But then, Brampton has also come up with its own version of 600k Airport Road homes. Milton was once a sleepy town, and now boomed up so bad. It's all about timing, I guess.

Don't worry, Ontario's $11.25/hr is not that far and better than 10.45. People are lobbying for $15/hr here, but who listens.

You can be rest assured that you are not alone in home hunting difficulties in Vancouver.
I read an article in Globe and Mail(see below) 2 days ago about how hot the market in Vancouver is. This highly qualified couple with 20% down-payment are unable to find one. They have presently chosen to post-phone their search.
It is sad when real estate greediness has the upper hand over simple desires such as owning a home.
There should be a mass movement where common man should completely boycott buying houses such that house prices should fall down to 300K.

Yup ..NOTHING but pure greed & speculation & house flipping & low interest rates is the reason behind these exhorbitant prices in BOTH , GTA & GVR.

The salaries & incomes are just NOT there to support these kind of prices.
