A new survey has revealed that Canadian women are far more likely than their male counterparts to consider quitting their jobs.

The survey is based on a representative sample of just over 1000 Canadians. Thirty-three percent of the women surveyed said they have thought about leaving their jobs to help steward their children's virtual education, versus 19 percent of men.

Women surveyed also indicated that they felt more stress due to the pandemic than males, and have turned down more job offers or promotions due to demands on their schedules, according to CTV News.

This is in addition to the fact that close to 20 percent of all jobs women held disappeared in the early days of the pandemic. Also, another study suggested that as many as half of all Canadian women lost work hours due to the pandemic and the quarantine measures.  Concerns are being raise about the fact that women in Canada have been disproportionately affected in terms of job loss.

Corollary to these issues, there are ongoing concerns about the need for better access to child care in order for women to be able go back to work in a post-pandemic scenario that's presumably in the near future.

The survey itself was performed by Pollara Strategic insights is considered to have a margin of error of +/- 3.1 percent and was performed during a three day time span, from August 21 to the 24.
