1.5 million women in Canada lost their jobs in the first 2 months of the COVID-19 pandemic.

Women represent 70% of losses by workers aged 25 to 54.

Women
accounted for
63%
of job losses but represent under half (47%) of all workers.

A 30% increase in gender-based domestic violence in Canada. Pre-pandemic, one women is killed every six days by her intimate partner.

Women’s participation in the workforce is at its lowest point since 1986.

33%
of women consider leaving their jobs to care for children due to lack of childcare and virtual schooling at home.

The consequences are not just to women and societal progress. The economy and businesses hurt too.

In Canada, $100 billion is the economic lift of women participating in the labour market equally to men.

This is where you come in.
