2017 Living Wage Report

A “living wage” is the amount of income an individual or a family requires to meet their basic needs, maintain a safe, decent and dignified standard of living, and save for future needs and goals. This is the second Living Wage report, following the primary study carried out in 2015. The following chart shows a summary of changes to Canmore’s living wage. You can learn more here Living Wage

Drug and Alcohol Policy

With the upcoming legalization of cannabis, employers and staff are looking for guidance about what use is and is not permitted in the workplace. This proposed policy is intended to address the use of cannabis on the job, along with the use of medication, alcohol, and other drugs. In a nutshell, employees are expected to be fit for duty, both for their own safety and safety of the public. The policy isn’t in effect yet; we’re planning to bring it for Council’s approval In March 2018.
