On September 18, 2019, Osler published their fifth annual report on diversity disclosure practices, where they highlight the achievement of some key benchmarks and for the first time showcase some examples of excellence in disclosure.

The report also includes a sampling of best practices in fostering greater gender diversity disclosed by leading Canadian companies.

In particular, our research findings provide insight into

  • the breakdown and percentages of women on boards for full-year 2018
  • the breakdown and percentages of women executive officers for full-year 2018
  • the industry breakdown of women directors for full-year 2018
  • diversity policies and targets for full-year 2018
  • 2019 mid-year results regarding the number and percentages of women directors and women in executive officer positions by industry
  • board policies on diversity and policies related to the nomination and identification of women on boards
  • targets for women on boards and in executive officer positions

The data presented in this report was obtained by examining public disclosure documents filed by all TSX-listed companies that are subject to National Instrument 58-101 Disclosure of Corporate Governance Practices, which requires disclosure respecting the representation of women on boards and in executive officer positions.
