It’s a fact: on average, women in Ontario get paid less than men. Women are more likely to work in low-wage industries. They are less likely to be promoted into higher-paid jobs. And sometimes, no matter what job they do, they get paid less than men doing the same work.

The Gender Wage Gap Steering Committee is accepting written submissions and will hold town hall meetings in 12 cities beginning in Richmond Hill on October 26.
