The Power of Parity: Advancing Women's Equality in Canada

Accelerating progress toward gender equality is not only a moral and social imperative, it would also deliver a growth dividend for Canada. In a new report from the McKinsey Global Institute (MGI), The power of parity: Advancing women’s equality in Canada, it is found that by taking steps to address this issue, Canada could add $150 billion in incremental GDP in 2026 or see a 0.6 percent increase of annual GDP growth. That’s 6 percent higher than business-as-usual GDP growth forecasts over the next decade

Canada, a global leader on gender equality, has seen progress stall over the past 20 years. Further tapping into women’s potential could reenergize Canada’s economy and its businesses.
