    Notice of release

    Québec, July 28, 2022. – The Institut de la statistique du Québec launched today a new statistical showcase on gender equality. This project is the result of a partnership with the Secrétariat à la condition feminine as part of the Government Strategy for Gender Equality 2022-2027.

    The showcase features statistics that outline the current situation in terms of equality between women and men and illustrate the trends observed in recent years in Québec. It highlights not only the progress made, but also the inequalities that persist.

    The different themes presented in the showcase cover aspects that are essential to monitoring equality:

    • Education
    • Work
    • Income and compensation
    • Family-work-study-life balance
    • Health
    • Violence
    • Power
    • Demographics

    Nearly 50 indicators are explained through highlights and represented by charts and tables. The showcase makes it possible to see and compare major trends over time for women and men.

    The Institut de la statistique du Québec produces, analyzes and disseminates official, objective and quality statistical information on various aspects of Québec society. It is responsible for conducting all statistical surveys of general interest. The relevance of its work makes it a strategic ally for decision makers and all those wishing to learn more about Québec
