January 9, 2020 – Wage gaps between men and women and white, Indigenous, and visible minority groups persist, despite a wide range of federal and provincial legislation intended to close them, according to a new report from the C.D. Howe Institute.

In “A Work in Progress: Measuring Wage Gaps for Women and Minorities in the Canadian Labour Market,” authors Tammy Schirle and Moyosoreoluwa Sogaolu provide figures for wage disparities that persist among groups working full-time in the private sector.
