Coalition for gender parity on Canadian boards of directors

Women and men must be equally represented on our boards of directors. While the Constitution recognizes gender equality, corporate Canada has clearly not made enough progress in this area.

Senator Céline Hervieux-Payette has put forward a bill that would establish gender parity on the board of directors of certain corporations, financial institutions and parent Crown corporations.  To support this bill sign on to the online petition, found here.

    Men and women also need to be equally represented in our post-secondary institutions. Where is the bill which would cut funding to any publically post-secondary institution with a significant gender disparity?

    I’m not sure of any bills in this session that are working on this, but it is certainly something we would support. It’s a great idea, and something we can work on in the future!
