About 30% Club Canada
Recognizing Canada’s distinct corporate governance framework, the aim of the 30% Club Canada is to engage both board Chairs and CEOs to achieve better gender balance at the board level, and at the executive level.
We are calling for beyond 30% representation of ALL women on boards and executive teams globally, with a particular focus on C-suite roles.
We aim for women to hold at least 30% of chair and senior independent director roles, as well as executive committee roles – particularly CEO and CFO roles.
For this reason, we have aligned with The 50-30 Challenge, an initiative between the Government of Canada, Canadian businesses, and diversity organizations. The goal of the program is to challenge Canadian organizations to increase the representation and inclusion of diverse groups within their workplaces while highlighting the benefits of giving all Canadians a seat at the table.
Join the challenge here.
We are building a strong foundation of business leaders who are committed to meaningful and sustainable inclusive leadership. As in all business ventures, ‘what gets measured gets managed’ – a numeric goal provides real impetus for change, and our goal is for a minimum of 30% of board seats and C-Suites to be held by women by 2024.
The 30% Club Canada Investor Group is a group of asset owners and asset managers committed to exercising their ownership rights to encourage increased representation of women on corporate boards and in executive management positions in Canada. Their Statement of Intent can be found here.

“Our objective is to achieve a minimum of 30% women on the boards and at the executive management level of S&P/TSX composite index companies by 2022. 30% is the level at which critical mass is achieved and contributions of a minority group cease being representative of that particular group and begin to be judged on their own merit.”

“Notre objectif est d’atteindre un minimum de 30 % de femmes sur le conseil et l’équipe de haute direction des entreprises incluses dans l’indice composé S&P/TSX d’ici 2022. Ce pourcentage est le niveau à partir duquel une masse critique est atteinte, et les contributions d’un groupe minoritaire cessent de ne représenter que ce dernier et sont jugées selon leurs propres mérites.”
