April 9, 2019

Family Service Toronto joins our Campaign 2000 colleagues on April 9 in recognizing Equal Pay Day, which marks the extra three months women in Canada have had to work in 2019 to match the amount of money men made in 2018 alone.

The gender pay gap persists in Canada, meaning that full-time working women earn less than men. And the gap is about more than gender, because it’s worse for women who are racialized, Indigenous, living with a disability, or newcomers to Canada.

Help raise awareness about #EqualPayDay by sharing it with your friends, family and other groups and your social media channels including Facebook.

Campaign 2000, a non-partisan coalition of 120 groups and individuals co-ordinated by FST, is also working with several national partners on a childcare-for-all campaign leading up to the October federal election. Affordable childcare would help close the gender pay gap and campaign partners include Oxfam Canada, Childcare for All coalition and YWCA Canada. Visit Campaign 2000 to learn more about the campaign for a major federal investment in childcare.
