Women in Business in Canada

Much progress has been made in the last few years and many women are now found in very senior management positions.

Women visiting Canada on business will encounter few if any problems relating to gender bias. Women are expected to behave in a professional and competent manner and will, in return, receive professional respect and be able to develop good working relationships.

Great emphasis is placed on diversity in all its facets and a gender blind approach by employers is not only seen as a legal requirement but also an ethical one.
