Pay Equity Commission of Ontario
Gender Wage Gap Grant Program
The Gender Wage Gap Grant Program (GWGGP) is intended to advance actions to promote equality between women and men that support efforts to close Ontario’s gender wage gap. This call for proposals supports the Government’s priority of economic growth by adding to our understanding of the gender wage gap and how the earning potential of Ontario’s working women can be maximized. This in turn benefits working families, the labour force in general and overall economic productivity.
Please note that this information is provided as an overview only, interested applicants should review the Guidelines carefully for more information and eligibility requirements.
In this context, two specific priority areas have been identified:
1) Actions/Research exploring gender wage gap and pay equity issues for members of racial and ethnic minorities, immigrants and youth.
2) Actions/Research exploring compensation issues and gender inequality in Ontario’s emerging workplace conditions.
