21.0.2. Where the general rate of the minimum wage referred to in section 3 of the Regulation respecting labour standards (chapter N-1.1, r. 3) is increased, the maximum annual levels of income provided for in paragraph 1 of section 18 and section 20 and the income provided for in section 21 are increased by the same percentage as the percentage of increase in the general rate of the minimum wage.
Such increase takes effect on the 30th day following the day of the effective increase in the general rate of the minimum wage.
The amounts thus increased are rounded up to the nearest dollar.
The Minister of Justice is to inform the public of the result of the increase by publishing a notice in the Gazette officielle du Québec showing, in a table, the financial eligibility thresholds thus increased and giving the date on which they take effect. The Minister may also make that information available using any other means the Minister considers appropriate.
