  • Poll shows Canadian women concerned that pandemic workplace accommodations won’t last

June 2022

Fewer Canadian women are working full-time – 62 percent, compared to 70 percent before the COVID-19 pandemic – and nearly half say they are likely to quit their jobs if asked to return to the office full-time. The Prosperity Project’s 5th Canadian Household Perspectives survey found the vast majority of women (91 percent) would prefer most or at least part of their work to be done remotely moving forward. 

Overall, the research shows mixed views on the impact of the pandemic, with 35 percent of respondents saying their careers are in a better place now, compared to 29 percent who said they are worse off than two years ago and 36 percent saying their career condition has not changed. Opinions were also mixed on what the end of the pandemic could mean for career prospects, with nearly a third (29 percent) of respondents optimistic that there will be more opportunities ahead and a quarter (24 percent) believing there will be fewer opportunities. However, the research shows many Canadian women are concerned that the better paying and higher-level jobs are more likely to be offered to men than to themselves.

  • 45 percent are more likely to quit their jobs if working from home at least part of the time is not an option.
  • 72 percent expect employers to put the priority on in-person office work going forward.
  • 60 percent feel they will have to choose between their career and their family – at a time when almost half (46 percent) said the pandemic has increased their responsibilities at home.
  • 63 percent said they would turn down promotions in order to keep working from home.
