Canada – The majority of parents are satisfied with their work-life balance

Overall, most parents who work full-time are satisfied with their work-life balance. In 2012, 3 out of 4 parents said they were satisfied or very satisfied with this balance (75%). The others were “neither satisfied nor dissatisfied” (15%), “dissatisfied” (8%) or “very dissatisfied” (1%).

Of the parents who said that they were not satisfied, the most frequently mentioned reason for the dissatisfaction was not having enough time for family life (Chart 1). This was followed by spending too much time on their job or main activity, and not having enough time for other activities.Women were a little less likely than men to be satisfied. Specifically, 72% of mothers reported that they were satisfied or very satisfied with their work-life balance, compared with 78% of fathers.
