- The majority of Canadian parents report being satisfied with the balance between their job and home life. Mothers were more likely than fathers to express dissatisfaction with their work-life balance. This conclusion remained valid in general when taking into consideration all job characteristics. For example, among those who worked 50 or more hours a week, mothers were less satisfied with the work-life balance. In addition, when all the factors in this fact sheet were held constant, in a multivariate analysis, women remained less likely to report being satisfied than men (results not presented). Data on the distribution of household chores and care for children between fathers and mothers are not available in the 2012 GSS. A study that would also take these factors into account could potentially help enrich the understanding of the differences between fathers and mothers regarding work-life balance.
