Men’s and Women’s Quality of Work in the New Canadian Economy

Despite much debate and commentary on the emerging knowledge economy in Canada and other
industrialized countries, there has been little in-depth analysis of how gender issues are playing
out in the process of economic and workplace change. Women’s experiences on the job are
usually examined using a limited range of measures, and scant attention has been paid to the
expectations that women and men bring to the workplace. The purpose of this report is to
provide new evidence on what women and men want in a job, and how they are experiencing the
transition to a knowledge-based economy.
