Canmore 2020 Living Wage

“Living Wage” is a community indicator that represents the approximate income an average family requires to meet their basic needs and maintain a safe, decent standard of living within their community. Canmore’s 2020 Living $30.97 per hour for each parent of a 2-parent, 2-child household, but is lower if affordable programs for local food, shelter, and transportation are factored in.
