Gender pay gap in the Canadian tech industry has tripled in the past 6 years.

A recent study reveals a big increase in the gender pay gap within the Canadian tech industry between 2016 and 2021. According to researchers from the DIAS (Data and Information Analysis Service), the average woman tech worker earned approximately $71,000 in 2021, compared to $91,000 earned by their male counterparts. This results in men making approximately $20,000 more on average.

The gap extends beyond gender. The study also found differences in earnings among visible minority tech workers, who earned around $78,000 annually, compared to $93,000 for those not identified as part of that group.

The average Indigenous tech worker makes around $14,000 less than their non-Indigenous counterparts that are making $86,000.

Even though the date collected from census findings say that Canadian tech workers make $40,000 more than in other sectors, they still make 46 per cent less than Americans do.
