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.

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.

And this person pretty much summed it up in one word.

This man wanted to point out that laundry just isn't his strong suit.

And this person had some other groundbreaking news to share.

However, Canada still ranks at number 11 in the world for women's equality, so our country is doing pretty well.
