SAINT JOHN, N.B. - New Brunswick's Liberal Party is promising to raise the province's minimum wage if it wins the September election.

Leader Brian Gallant says minimum hourly pay in the province would jump to $10.30 by year's end, then to $11 by the close of 2017.

The announcement comes as Labour Day is celebrated across the country.

Minimum wage in New Brunswick is currently $10, which is tied with Saskatchewan, Newfoundland and Labrador and the Northwest Territories for lowest in the country.

Saskatchewan and Newfoundland and Labrador will see a 20-cent increase in minimum hourly pay beginning Oct. 1.

New Brunswick voters head to the polls on Sept. 22.
