«The Work, Family, and Equity Index (WFEI) has been developed by the Project on Global Working Families to measure governmental performance around the world in meeting the needs of working families.The indicators in the WFEI were selected to provide an evidence-based assessment of policies crucial to the needs of working families in general and low- and middle-income working families in particular.[...] These include maternity, paternity and parental leave; infant and toddler care; breastfeeding breaks at work; paid leave to meet children’s health and educational needs; maximum hour limits, overtime limits, annual leave, mandatory day of rest and other standards; paid leave and flexibility for health care support for adult family members, family events and other extraordinary circumstances; and paid leave and flexibility for workers’ own health needs. WECan (Work Equity Canada) provides an in-depth look at Canada, taking into account the legislative variations across provinces and territories. It is one of a series of country-specific indexes based on the Work, Family, and Equity Index (WFEI).» (p.i)
