Equal Pay Day is April 16


Pay equity is the law in Ontario, but the latest data shows that women, on average, earn 31% less than men. That’s 3% higher than the year before. That’s not just unfair. It’s against the law.

With rumblings of an election around the corner, this is the time to demand a real commitment to closing the gender pay gap.


Sign the declaration

Sign the pay equity declaration to tell Ontario it’s time to pay women fairly.

As parties gear up for a possible election, let’s make sure pay equity is on their platforms. We need a concrete plan, we need a minimum wage that’s above the poverty line, and we need to enforce and expand pay equity laws.

Equal Pay Day is April 16th this year, and we’re planning events in Ottawa, Kingston, London, Sudbury, Toronto, and Windsor. Find events near you.
