Sweden Country Report and Technical Report. Overall score: 7.37. Download country and technical report here. Report summary: Sweden actively promotes gender equality and this is reflected in its relatively high score for the GCPI. However, its reliance on collective bargaining agreements mediated by trade unions leaves non-unionized workers without as many labor protections. The growing migrant domestic worker population in Sweden is particularly vulnerable.

Canada’s employment standards laws and mandatory social insurance scheme ensure that family caregivers and paid domestic workers are provided with a robust set of labor protections. However, Canada has much room for improvement in supporting flexible work arrangements for workers with family responsibilities as well as nursing support in the workplace. Canada’s overall GCPI score is 6.47, placing it in the middle of the “Maturing” Protections band.
