Immigrant And Racialized Women And The Economy - An OCASI Submission



Toronto / July 28, 2021

OCASI made submissions to Ontario's Task Force on Women and the Economy for its consultation on women’s participation in the economy and Ontario’s workforce.

The Task Force was appointed by the Ontario government to advise the Minister of Finance and the Associate Minister of Children and Women’s Issues on addressing the unique and disproportionate economic barriers women face, particularly in an economy that will look different after 

The OCASI submission called for systemic change to end the persistent underutilization and under-compensation of immigrant and racialized women's talents and skills in the labour force, and call for the adoption of concrete measures that will end systemic inequities in the labour market and the economy.
