Workplace diversity and inclusion

The Government of Canada’s
50 - 30 Challenge

The goal of the 50-30 Challenge is to reach 50% gender parity and 30% representation of under-represented groups over time.

Now, more than ever, Canada needs to think of what, or, more so, who, makes Canada great? What is it about the Canadian character and spirit that makes us so resilient, innovative, creative and ambitious?

Canada has long taken pride in being a country made up of a cultural mosaic – and that by embracing our diversity we are more whole and become stronger.

That is why the Government of Canada is launching the 50 – 30 Challenge, a bottom-up approach co-created with the private-sector to further advance inclusion, diversity and economic prosperity from coast to coast to coast.

The challenge is rooted in two aspirations – gender parity and significant representation of under-represented groups:

  • Gender parity ("50%") on Board(s) and senior management, and;
  • Significant representation ("30%") on Board(s) and senior management of other under-represented groups, including racialized persons, people living with disabilities (including invisible and episodic disabilities) and members of the LGBTQ2 community. The program and participants recognize First Nations, Inuit and Métis peoples' as founding peoples of Canada and under-represented in positions of economic influence and leadership.
