Canadian women receive 21 cents less than men on every dollar earned for substantially the same work, while almost 60% of all women over 15 are part of the paid workforce in Canada, accounting for almost half of all workers. Women and children make up three‐quarters of all Canadians living in poverty. Most single‐parent families are supported by a working woman, and most of them live below the poverty line.
