Canadian women do more household chores than men and nobody is surprised
Canadian women do more household chores than men, according to a recent study by Statistics Canada — and literally nobody is surprised.
The study found that Canadian women do most of the laundry (61 per cent) and meal preparation (56 per cent) in the family household, while men typically look after outdoor work and repairs (78 per cent).
Tasks such as doing the dishes, grocery shopping and organizing the household's social life were shared equally between men and women.
StatsCan survey finds that among opposite-sex couples, women do most of the household chores. It says laundry (61%) and cooking (56%) were most often done by women, while men (78%) are more likely to do outdoor work and repairs.

Although the study confirmed that household chores are increasingly being shared as more women enter the work force, Canadians are still unsurprised by the distribution of tasks.
This man could have predicted the survey results.

This man wanted to point out that laundry just isn't his strong suit.
Hey, I tried to do laundry but I shrunk my wife's sweater so now I'm banned.— 𝗣𝗲𝘁𝗲𝗿 (@redfiveonline) February 19, 2020
And this person had some other groundbreaking news to share.
Wow in other news sales of ice cream seem to go up in the summer— Tired Nonsense (@tirednonsense) February 19, 2020
However, Canada still ranks at number 11 in the world for women's equality, so our country is doing pretty well.
