Third Employment Quality Study Day – Work-Family Balance, November 2 and 3, 2016

Montréal, October 27, 2016 – Within the scope of important work on employment, the Institut de la statistique du Québec, in association with the ministère de la Famille, TÉLUQ (Université du Québec) and the Centre interuniversitaire québécois de statistiques sociales (CIQSS), will hold its third Employment Quality Study Day on the topic of work-family balance (WFB).

WFB is a current topic, since nearly half of the Québec labour force aged 25 to 54 has family responsibilities. In addition, nearly 1,250,000 workers from this age group have at least one child under the age of 18 in their household. Of these children, nearly half are under the age of 6.

A full and varied program

The program for this third Study Day will comprise, among other things, an overview of parenthood and work-family balance, WFB issues and problems, the reconciliation of time and familial and professional responsibilities, and the balance between work-family and health. A round table discussion on the place of the father in WFB will also be held.

This Study Day will last for a day and half over November 2 and 3, 2016, and be held in the TÉLUQ offices at 5800 Saint-Denis, suite 1105, in Montréal (near Rosemont station on the orange line).

 


The Institut de la statistique du Québec produces, analyzes and disseminates official, objective and quality statistical information on various aspects of Québec society. It is responsible for carrying out all statistical surveys of general interest. The relevance of its work makes it a strategic ally for decision makers and all those wishing to learn more about Québec.
