Fewer women in Canada hold top jobs

Canadian cities don’t have as many women in top management jobs as do cities in the United States and that could be bad for future growth. That’s the finding of a study by the Toronto Region Board of Trade. Toronto for example, gets a C grade in the board’s “human capital” scorecard and places it fifth among major North American cities.

Women have different skills and approaches which can enhance a company’s management and performance. In Canada women hold 35.6 per cent of management occupations. In the United States they hold 38.6 percent of them. RCI’s Lynn Desjardins reports.
