Abstract

This chapter considers the policies and practices on achieving equality for men and women at work in Canada and Australia. Both countries are compared because of their similarities in terms of their political, economic and social values (O’Connor, Orloff & Shaver, 1999). Canada and Australia are also similar in many aspects on efforts to promote equality for women. The Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development (OECD) has monitored the economic and social well-being of people internationally with a ‘wealth distribution equality’ measured through the Gini coefficient (OECD, 2012).
