A living wage is the hourly wage a worker needs to earn to cover their basic expenses and participate in their community.

A living wage is not the same as the minimum wage, which is the legislated minimum all employers must pay and is set by the provincial government. The living wage reflects what people need to earn to cover the actual costs of living in their community, and draws on community-specific data to determine the expenses. Living wage employers voluntarily decide to pay a living wage and maintain their certification as new rates are calculated for their area.

    I live in Canada, Ontario, and I have a preferred grocery store that is No Frills. No Frills is one of the leading grocery store chains in Canada & Loblaws Co controls it. I am a frequent customer of the No Frills, and mostly I buy all my monthly groceries only at No Frills stores. They are now gathering customers’ honest feedback through an online survey. All the clients of No Frills are eligible to take the No Frills survey at https://storeopinion-ca.page/ official website and share your genuine feedback & help them improve their store services. Customers can get a $1000 gift card or 1 Million PC Optimum points for free by taking the No Frills survey.
