This study reveals the best and worst places to be a woman in Canada. It ranks Canada’s 20 largest metropolitan areas based on a comparison of how men and women are faring in five areas: economic security, leadership, health, personal security, and education. Among the study’s key findings is the fact that Canada’s big three cities fall in the middle as a group with Montreal in 4th place, Toronto in 6th place, and Vancouver in 13th place.
The study also includes a small sample of projects that are underway in Canadian cities to help close the gender gap, but warns that these organizations are disappearing at the federal and provincial levels as organizations that used to provide a venue for communities to share their experiences and learn from one another are disappearing.
