Representation & Leadership

Significant Progress

The government continues to be a staunch advocate for women’s leadership and inclusion. In 2018 it created the Department for Women and Gender Equality and doubled federal funding for the Canadian women’s movement.


Women represent 27% of all Members of Parliament in Canada. At the current rate of progress, it will take another century to hit parity between men and women.
