GBA+ Awareness Week 2017 - Quiz Ansawer 5

5. Women and men are already equal in Canada, so GBA+ is not needed.

Answer: False - While many advances have been made, significant equality gaps remain. In Canada, women who work full-time earn on average only 87 cents to every dollar earned by men (Statistics Canada, 2017). Women are also more often the victims of domestic and sexual violence. They also continue to be under-represented in leadership and executive positions, occupying just 21.6% of board positions in Canada’s top 500 corporations (Canada Board Diversity Council 2016 Report Card).
