Equal Pay Day 2017

College st. & University ave.
Toronto , ON
Event date: 
11 Apr 2017 - 12:00pm to 1:00pm


At a 30% pay gap, a woman will have to work 3 1/2 months into the new year to earn what men do by December 31 of the previous year. Put another way, it will take Ontarian women 15 1/2 months to earn what Ontarian men do in 12–and women who are racialized, disabled, Indigenous, migrant and immigrant, or sexual minorities or gender variant will have to work into May and June.

This is why Equal Pay Day is in April.

On the street

  • Women, come on your lunch break!
  • Wear red, because discriminatory pay gaps keep women “in the red”.
  • Demand the Ontario government take steps to close the gender pay gap!
