According to a study conducted by the Royal Bank of Canada published in the Journal Le Devoir, it was revealed that women’s participation in the labor force has fallen to its lowest level in 30 years due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

On the subject, CHIP 101.9 spoke with businesswoman Danièle Henkel, who appeared on the show "Les Dragons.’’ The president and founder of Les Entreprises DANIÈLE HENKEL said she believes that the 1.5 million women who have lost their jobs during the first two months of the pandemic should be a cause for concern.

Danièle Henkel also believes that there are solutions, involving different levels of government, that could be tabled to help regions like the Pontiac to create jobs.
