Women's economic security : securing the future of Canada's economy / Karen Vecchio, chair.: XC71-1/1-421-12E-PDF

"Over the past half a century, the economic security and participation of women in the Canadian economy has undergone an incredible transformation. Women’s workforce participation increased steadily, from around 24% in 1953 to 76% in 1990. By 2016, women made up approximately 47.3% of the Canadian labour force. While this evolution has been advantageous to Canadian women and to the economy as a whole, there remain significant challenges to women’s full and equal participation in the Canadian economy. Improving women’s economic security is essential as it contributes significantly to the maintenance and growth of the Canadian economy"--Summary, p. 1.
