The Coalition for Pay Equity will be pressing the Gallant Government in 2018 with a new campaign as a provincial election looms in September.

The provincial Minister for Seniors and Long Term Care, Lisa Harris is defending the Gallant Government's record on gender equality.

Harris says gender balance has been improved on provincial agencies, boards and commissions, and by providing more daycare spaces allowing more women to enter the workforce.

Harris says the provincial government acknowledges the need to have more women as decision makers.
