For the 16th year in a row, Report on Business has rated the work of Canada's corporate boards using a rigorous set of governance criteria designed to go far beyond minimum mandatory rules imposed by regulators.
Markers at the Clarkson Centre for Business Ethics and Board Effectiveness at University of Toronto examined the boards of directors of 242 companies and trusts in the S&P/TSX composite index to assess the quality of their governance practices.
The question marks in the top row of the table provide a summary of each question. For a full explanation of each question and how marks were assigned, see the full Board Games 2017 methodology.
Additional tables on company and director diversity and a full report card are available for purchase.
