It depends on the province and the minimum wage. In B.C it is 8, in N.B. it is 7 (I think). Usually a bartender is paid the minimum wage. You have to show that you are an above average bartender to recieve more. Hopefully more people can help answer you question.

yea it depends on the province. From what I've heard, as long as the tips are good, expect anything from base minimum wage to lower than that.
Where i work, there arent a lot of tips, so i'm getting 10/hr to kinda cover for the low tips. But i started at 7.50/hr
