Abstract

Despite recent improvements and the existence of employment equity and pay equity legislations, both at the federal and provincial levels, women continue to earn less than men, even among younger and more educated cohorts. Why is the gender wage gap persisting? In this presentation, we review possible explanations put forward in the literature and summarize the main findings of a body of empirical research using Canadian data.
