15% - 33%.
Canada's federal income tax rates are levied on a progressive scale, with rates ranging from 15% to 33%. In the country's progressive income tax system, portions of an individual's income are allocated to the country's personal income tax brackets, and each portion of income allocated to a tax bracket is taxed at the tax rate applicable to that tax bracket.
Employees also are responsible for paying provincial and territorial income taxes, which are covered in the State/Jurisdiction Taxes subsection.
Typical Working Hours per Week:
Standard work hours in Canada are generally 8-hour days, or 40 hours per week. Typically the maximum number of hours worked in a week is 48 hours. This can be exceeded in special circumstances including permits, for emergency work, under an averaging plan, or a modified work schedule.
Any hours that exceed standard hours of work are considered overtime hours. Overtime pay in Canada is typically calculated at a higher rate than the regular hourly wage. Overtime laws in Canada are complex and can depend on the specific circumstances and the employee. We are happy to discuss this in more detail for a specific context.
