pa.PNGIf you check out the ranks of the C-Suite, Men hold 92% of  the top leadership roles of Canada's 100 largest publicly traded companies. Of those 100 companies, 66 have zero women in senior executive positions. These trends are part of the reason behind the pay gap. Women working full time in Canada earn 88 cents for every dollar their male counterparts make. Compared to other industrialized countries, Canada gets a failing grade when it comes to equal pay.
