The wage gap is already smaller, though women still earn 87 cents for every dollar received by men

The latest report by Statistics Canada says women earned an average of 13.3% less per hour than men last year. It means, for every dollar men received, women earned only $0.87.

According to the study, women in the core working ages earned an average of $26.92 per hour in 2018. At the same time their male counterparts earned on average $31.05.

However, this wage gap is already decreasing. Statistics Canada studied this issue since 1998, using the information, received during the poll of 56,000 households.

The report focused on both full-time and part-time employees in the age category of 25-54 years old. It studied only the difference in wages between men and women, not viewing the differences for women of colour, Indigenous women or new immigrants.

While the gap, unfortunately, still exists, it fell by 5.5%: from 18.8% in 1998 to 13.3% last year.

The report points to changes in occupational distribution of men and women during this period as the main factor leading to smaller gender wage gap. The main occupations that supported this change include law and government services, education sector, business and finance segments.

Such higher paying occupations hired more women last year than back in 1998. In addition to it, earnings in these sectors also grew faster.

According to the study, the gap still exists mainly because of the distribution of women and men across industries and women's overrepresentation in the sector of part-time work.

Both in 1998 and 2018, women's overrepresentation in part-time work increased the wage gap. Last year it accounted for 9.2 cents of the 13.3-cent gap and in 1998 it represented 8.9 cents of the 18.8-cent gap.

Meanwhile, more men were hired last year in the sectors of natural and applied sciences and administrative occupations and these segments show higher hourly payments. Moreover, wages also rose faster in these segments.
