Abstract:

The Premier has asked the Minister of Labour, working with the Minister Responsible for Women’s Issues, to develop a wage gap strategy “that will close the gap between men and women in the context of the 21st century economy.”On April 15, 2015, Ontario appointed a Gender Wage Gap Strategy Steering Committee to provide advice and recommendations to the Ministers. The Committee members are:Nancy Austin, Executive Lead, Gender Wage Gap Strategy, Ministry of LabourLinda Davis, Past-President of the Business and Professional Women’s Clubs of OntarioEmanuela Heyninck, Ontario’s Pay Equity CommissionerDr. Parbudyal Singh, Professor of Human Resource Management at York University, PhD in Human Resources Management/Labour RelationsThe Committee will conduct research and consult the public. It will report back to government in late 2015 with the results of its consultations, and in 2016 with recommendations that will help shape the province’s Gender Wage Gap Strategy.A note on the scope of the consultationsThe Steering Committee will consult with diverse groups across the province to:Examine how the gender wage gap affects women: at work, in their family, and in their community.Examine how the gender wage gap impacts different women in the workforce, across the economic spectrum.Examine ways in which government, business, labour, other organizations, and individual leaders can work together to address the conditions and the systemic barriers that contribute to the wage gap.Understand the issues that intersect with gender, such as race and disability, that may increase the wage gap, and recommend how those issues could be addressed.The Steering Committee will consider whether Ontario’s existing legislation (including the Pay Equity Act, Employment Standards Act, 2000, and Human Rights Code) sufficiently address the gender wage gap, but it will not recommend specific legislative amendments.There is some overlap between the gender wage gap and other workplace issues being considered by other initiatives, such as the Poverty Reduction Strategy and the Changing Workplaces Review. The Steering Committee will ensure its recommendations complement, but do not infringe, upon these other initiatives.
