In 1996, the National Committee on Pay Equity (NCPE) initiated Equal Pay Day to bring awareness to the pay gap between men’s and women’s wages.
The last Equal Pay Day is Tuesday, April 10, 2018. It is a symbolic day that marks how far into the year women work to earn what men earned in the previous year.
Ontario is introducing a Pay Transparency Act (Bill 3). Under the act, employers will be required to disclose anonymized wage data by sex. Read the Toronto Star article for more information.
