Grattan Institute highlights the Canadian system
The Grattan Institute report says that...
"Canada’s experience shows that lower effective tax rates and
subsidised child care lead to more women in paid work.
Female participation grew rapidly in Canada from the mid-1970s
and is well ahead of Australia. Female workforce participation
(aged 25-54) rose from 53.1 per cent in 1976 to 82 per cent in
In this age group, over 80 per cent of female workers are
employed full-time. In 2009, 64 per cent of mothers with children
under 3 do some paid work."
