dc.description.abstractThis paper explores the gender inequality of pension income in Canada and its relation to the pension policies. In particular it examines the Canadian pension system (CPS) through a gender lens. By selecting a series of gender-sensitive indicators, it addresses the gendered dimensions of pension policies and compares unequal pension outcomes between senior men and women. It argues that the CPS is not as women-friendly as it appears to be, mainly because it embraces a ‗universal worker‘ gender assumption in pension provisions. In other words, structural constraints operating in the labor market and families create barriers to pension equality between men and women.
