This article analyses accessibility to jobs from the perspective of single-parent house in Toronto. Individuals in this demographic segment are of interest due to the fact they often face the double burden of household and employment responsibilities. Analysis is based on the application of relative accessibility deprivation indicators (estimates of distance traveled for various population segments, as well as employment data for the city and its surroundings). The results indicate that there are substantial differences in the levels of accessibility to jobs between members of single-parent households, in particular females, and members of other types of households
