We're mobilizing for Equal Pay Day!

April 4, 2023 is Equal Pay Day. It symbolizes how far into the next year the average woman must work in order to have earned what the average man had earned in the previous year.

Meet the Coalition

 
Since 1976, the non-partisan Equal Pay Coalition has been the main advocate for women’s pay equity in Ontario.
 
We unite 40+ women’s groups, trade unions, community groups and business organizations representing hundreds of thousands of women and gender diverse people across the province.

The pay gap harms all women—but some have it worse.

Pay gaps are a human rights violation. It’s time we all speak up.

The pay gap affects Ontario women differently.​

Women in Ontario face a 32% pay gap on average. But if you’re a women with disabilities, an immigrant, Indigenous, or racialized, it’s much wider.

Women with disabilities 56%
Immigrant women 55%
Indigenous women 45%
Racialized women 40%
