The Best and Worst Places to be a Woman in Canada

To mark International Women’s Day on March 8, 2019, the Canadian Centre for Policy Alternatives (CCPA) released, The Best and Worst Places to be a Woman in Canada 2019 – The Gender Gap in Canada’s 26 Biggest Cities.  In this fifth edition, the mandate continues to look at gender equality trends in Canadian cities—as part of a larger agenda to advance women’s rights and well-being.

The World Economic Forum’s (WEF) Global Gender Gap Index ranked Canada in 30th place in 2015, and in 35th place in 2016. Canada turned this around by moving up the index to 16th place in 2017 and holding that position in 2018 — the direct result of a boost in women’s representation in the federal cabinet after the 2015 election.  Notably, two key women Ministers have recently resigned from the Federal Cabinet.
