Sharing a perspective similar to the social determinants of health, the Canadian Index of Wellbeing (CIW) monitors progress in wellbeing over time and considers the complexity of interactions among the many factors that contribute to wellbeing. In addition, the CIW examines how progress in wellbeing varies among sub-groups within the population based on characteristics such as age, income, and gender.

This study explored where any differences between male and female Canadians on several indicators of wellbeing exist and whether these differences have narrowed, widened, or remained the same over time. By doing so, we can highlight those areas where success in moving towards greater gender equity is occurring, but importantly, identify areas where we can do better in ensuring that women have the same opportunities to thrive.
