Temporary Wage Supplement Program

The Government of Saskatchewan has provided additional information about their temporary wage supplement program (STWSP). We did not negotiate this program with the government. The government claims that this program will help 35,000 workers in the province. Notable is that this is a cost shared program with the federal government. The total cost to provide the program is $56 million, with the province’s share being only $3 million. We appreciate that the lowest wage earners in the province are receiving a top up; however, we remain concerned and will continue to advocate for recognition pay for all health care workers in Saskatchewan.

To be eligible, a worker must:

  • Earn a wage less than $24.00 per hour, at an eligible essential care facility, in the four-week period for which the worker has applied for the STWSP;
    Have total gross earnings less than $2,500, including earnings from work outside an eligible essential care facility, in the four-week period for which the worker has applied for the STWSP; and
  • Be employed by an eligible essential care facility, including:
    • Public and private senior care homes;
    • Integrated health care facilities; and
    • Home care workers providing care to seniors in their own home.
      [The page indicates that this is Saskatchewan Health Authority home care workers.]

Acute care facilities, such as hospitals, are not eligible facilities. Eligible essential care facilities are listed alphabetically by region in the online application form (see drop-down menus under “Employer Information”).

The benefit will be provided to eligible full-time, part-time, and casual workers and includes anyone employed by the facility.

The temporary supplement is $400 for each four-week period, up to 16 weeks, for the period from March 15, 2020 to July 4, 2020.

In order to receive this benefit, members need to submit their own application, providing direct deposit information, pay stubs, and a declaration that they meet the eligibility criteria.
