Representation & Leadership
The federal cabinet continues to be gender-balanced, and more women were elected to Parliament. The government strengthened its application of GBA+ and made historic investments in Canadian women’s rights organizations.
Women represent 29% of all Members of Parliament in Canada, up from 27% following the October 2019 federal election. At the current rate of progress, it will take until the end of this century to hit gender parity.
