Raising Awareness for Gender and Economic Equality throughout Canada
Inequality is a prominent issue throughout Canada. According to Statistics Canada, women earn 87 cents for every dollar earned by men. On top of this, Indigenous, racialized, and immigrant women, as well as women with disabilities, all experience the wage gap in different ways. Canada's persisting inequalities have been proven to slow our economic growth and negatively impact our society.
