Newfoundland and Quebec saw the fastest participation rate growth between 2008 and 2018 says Statistics. Around 83 percent of women in Canada aged 25 to 54 years were working or looking for work in 2018, according to a new update from Statistics Canada to mark International Women’s Day on March 8. The 2018 participation statistics surpassed the 1950 demographics with just over 21 percent of Canadian women in this demographic group participated in Canada’s labour market. By 1991, this rate had risen to 75.9 percent.
"The increase in women's participated coincided with socio-demographic and economic changes, such as increased participation in higher levels of education, delayed marriage, and childbearing, and increased separation and divorce," Statistics Canada notes.
At the provincial level, the fastest rate of growth in women’s labour market participation between 2008 and 2018 was in Newfoundland and Labrador where the rate rose five percentage points to 81.6 percent in 2018.
The rate of labour market participation during this ten year period was second highest in Quebec where it rose by 3.9 percentage points to 86.7 percent. The participation increased to 2.3 percentage points between 2008 and 2018 to 77.7 percent for women aged 25 to 54 years.
Statistics Canada also showed 2017 data from the Organization of Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD) that showed Canada’s labour market participation rate of 82.4 that year for women aged 25 to 54 years was higher than OECD average of 73 percent.
This participation rate of Canada is ahead of the United States which had a rate of 75 percent but is behind Sweden and Iceland that has a rate of 88.7 percent.

This is in regard to my journey with Aptechvisa Services. I have experienced here were so far better and I already recommended my multiple friends to them because I can trust their words. I got Aptech visa reference through one of my best friend and today I am in Canada and this all happened just because of Aptech visa.
This is a time to appreciate the performance of Aptech visa. True, Genuine, professional and what not, this is the immigration consultancy to whom we can trust blindly. Due to my age factor I did not score well but more than 400 and this made myself eligible for Ontario and my consultant worked hard in my profile and made it true.
Hope you all are reading my message with Great Spirit. I would rate Aptech 10 out of 10. In between of my application, I have faced a lot of issues in arranging documents but everything went well and there was a continuous support of Aptech which motivated me everything and today I am in Canada, Ontario. Thank you Aptech
Aptech is the best immigration consultant and the staff is of very friendly nature. Since I was there in US, so it was very difficult for me to coordinate with them but they always answered my queries very promptly and meantime, my father was there every time to support me. With the help of Aptech and my father, we got our PR visa for Canada. I am feeling so lucky to be associated with Aptech.
Here we would like to Thank you Aptech visa for all the assistance and help which we have received in our Canada PR visa application throughout the process. They helped me a lot in every manner and it would be an honor if I would say something good about Aptech visa. You guys are really hard working.
Mine was the wonderful journey with Aptech throughout the process. I enjoyed working with them and I would really recommend Aptech to all of you. I have also given a lot of references and in future also will try to refer Aptech to all my known and relatives.
My son has applied for PR visa through Aptech and then he decided to apply for my tourist visa from Aptech only and you can’t believe that I got my visa within 24 hours after applying for the online application. I would really appreciate the work out done by Aptech Global in our applications. Keep working hard guys.
Due to some corrections in my passport, it took more time for me to get the visa but Aptech handled all the things very precisely and smartly. They keep on coordinating with High Commission for my application and did all the conversation on time. Thank you for supporting me.
