This is a fact sheet about the gender wage gap in Canada. The gender wage gap is the difference in earnings between women and men in the workplace. It is a widely recognized indicator of women’s economic equality, and it exists to some extent in every country in the world. A 2015 UN Human Rights report raised concerns about “the persisting inequalities between women and men” in Canada, including the “high level of the pay gap” and its disproportionate effect on low-income women, visible minority women, and indigenous women. Out of 34 countries in the OECD, Canada had the 7th higher gender wage gap in 2014.
