[cc 2.0]A sign protesting low wages in Iqaluit. Nunavut's minimum wage increased to $10 per hour this month, making it the highest in the country. Anti-poverty activists, however, say the cost of living is so high in the North that minimum wage should be at least $15 per hour.

The Dominion is a monthly paper published by an incipient network of independent journalists in Canada. It aims to provide accurate, critical coverage that is accountable to its readers and the subjects it tackles. Taking its name from Canada's official status as both a colony and a colonial force, the Dominion examines politics, culture and daily life with a view to understanding the exercise of power.
