The purpose of this guide is to assist others in calculating a living wage for their own communities, using the method developed by the CCPA-BC and First Call to calculate Vancouver and Victoria living wages in 2008. This particular guide will be most useful for the calculation of the living wage in Manitoba communities. The method can be applied in other provinces and territories; however, the government transfers and tax information will need to be adjusted accordingly.
