A new report says women hold 19.5 per cent of the seats on the boards of Canada's biggest companies by revenue, up from 17.1 per cent in 2014. The increase follows the introduction the new "comply or explain" policy that forces publicly traded companies to disclose certain statistics around the representation of women on their boards.
