Statistics Canada released a new study, Immigrant women among board directors and officers: From admission in Canada to executive roles. This study provides the first socioeconomic profile of immigrant women at admission who have reached management positions in their careers once employed in Canada. Through an intersectional lens, exploratory estimates on disparities by gender and immigrant status for family, work and income characteristics are presented.
Among all executives, immigrant women were the least likely to contribute on a board of directors, with 48% of immigrant women working as board directors and 52% as officers. In contrast, Canadian-born men (65%), immigrant men (61%) and Canadian-born women (53%) were all more likely to work as board directors.
As officers, immigrant women were less likely to occupy higher top-level roles. For example, immigrant women officers (10%) were more than two times less likely to work as president of a corporation than immigrant men officers (22%), while immigrant women officers were more than two times more likely than immigrant men officers to hold a secretary position (11% for immigrant women officers, compared with 4% for immigrant men officers).
