My question was for the Minister of Families, Children and Social Development, but I will put it to the witnesses who are here.
Over the past few meetings, the committee has heard that women were under-represented in trades in Canada. When it comes to women's participation in the workforce, Canada ranks high compared to other OECD countries.
However, Canadian mothers, especially those with young children, are less likely to participate in the workforce than women from the best-performing OECD countries. Women with children are often unable to fully participate in the workforce owing to maternity-related challenges and the balance between family and work.
Can you tell us about initiatives the current government has taken with regard to equal opportunities for women and men since it took power and about the gender-based analysis carried out when Budget 2017 was drafted?
