Right to a fair wage

Pay equity is the right of workers in a typical female job to receive pay equal to a person in a typical male job of equivalent value in the same company.

Pay equity aims to correct differences in pay caused by gender discrimination within a company.
A better understanding of gender discrimination allows jobs to be assessed fairly and wage differences prevented.
The CNESST supports employers and workers for pay equity. It also ensures the enforcement of the Act.
We offer several pay equity training sessions for people who want to learn more about pay equity.
