This paper presents an estimate of unpaid childcare, other unpaid household activities, and paid employment in Canadian provinces for the period from 1998 to 2015. The estimate is then used to assess the effects of the low-cost childcare program launched in Quebec in 1997 on paid employment and to examine the contribution of unpaid childcare and other unpaid household activities to wellbeing and welfare in Canada.
