2017-2018 Gender Wage Gap Grant Program

The Pay Equity Office’s Gender Wage Gap Grant Program (GWGGP) launched on April 11, 2017. 

The program seeks proposals that may include: actions or research exploring gender wage gap and pay equity issues for members of racial and ethnic minorities, immigrants and youth; or actions or research exploring compensation issues and gender inequality in Ontario’s emerging workplace conditions.

The Program intends to:

  • advance action to promote equality between women and men that support efforts to close Ontario’s gender wage gap; and,
  • support the Government’s priority of economic growth by understanding how the earning potential of Ontario’s working women can be maximized.

The Pay Equity Office will fund successful initiatives through a transfer payment. For more information, or to apply for the grant program, please visit our website. Since 2014, the Pay Equity Office’s Gender Wage Gap Grant Program (GWGGP) has funded eight projects that add to our understanding of pay equity, the gender wage gap, and how the earning potential of Ontario’s working women can be maximized.
