Women earn $0.88 for every dollar earned by men: Statistics Canada

Statistics Canada’s latest report on women’s employment rates and gender wage differences shows that despite the convergence in their employment rates, women continue to earn less than men.

The highlights of the report are:

  • Since 1950 the employment rate for women had more than tripled to 77.8% by 2016.

  • The employment rate for men fell from 94.0% in 1950 to 85.0% in 2016.
  • In 2016, women aged 25 to 54 working full time earned an average of $26.69 per hour, while their male counterparts earned an average of $30.35.
  • On an hourly basis, women earned $0.88 for every dollar earned by men in 2016, up from about $0.75 in the mid-1980s.
