If you’ve been closely following the dynamic field of care occupations, you might be as excited to dig into some statistics. This month, we’re focusing on women’s invaluable role in paid care sectors, such as Early Childhood Assistant, Developmental Service Worker, Personal Support Worker, and Community Service Worker programs.
According to Statistics Canada, paid care occupations employed nearly 3.2 million individuals. That’s 19% of Canada’s total employed population! The largest share of this workforce—three-quarters (75%)—were women.
Women have an edge over their male counterparts in acquiring college credentials. Specifically, 29% of women in care occupations held a college diploma or certificate as their highest educational credential. In contrast, only 16% of men could say the same. Conversely, more men (51%) held university degrees than women (44%).
22% of women are seen in roles requiring a college diploma or apprenticeship certificate, such as Early Childhood Assistants or Licensed Practical Nurses, while men only make up 13% of these roles.
