A Commons committee that studied economic barriers facing women in Canada – has released an extensive list of recommendations – that it believes could provide a road  toward full equality for women.

The Standing Committee on the Status of Women has tabled its report – following a 15-month study of women’s economic security.

The 86 recommendations for change include a call for an immediate implementation of pay equity legislation – and for the federal government to request all provincial and territorial labour ministers do the same.

Suggested measures to close the wage gap include – more investment in child care, especially in rural and marginalized communities as well as more support for women to enter and advance in traditionally male-dominated sectors.
