The Government is making targeted investments to expand access to the education, work experiences and the help that Canadians need to get high-quality jobs. These investments are already translating into greater opportunities for students and workers. With your input, we will continue to focus on creating good jobs today, while also preparing Canadians to advance in their careers.
Canada’s economy has created over 500,000 new jobs since 2015, and the unemployment rate is at its lowest level since 2008. The Government is working to do even more to help create good, well-paying jobs, and to build one of the smartest, most skilled, and most creative workforces in the world.
The Government is working to advance the goals of fairness and equality, so that as our economy grows, all Canadians benefit. To do that, the Government knows that every Canadian—men and women—should have an equal opportunity to thrive and succeed in Canada’s economy. There is still a lot of work to do, and we want your help to get there.
“In Budget 2017, we included a Gender Statement to guide policy discussions and ensure that we can better support women and girls, reduce the gender wage gap, and help create a more inclusive workforce. This is the Canada I want for my daughters, and my sons.”
