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.

Editor’s note: An earlier version of this chart included an incorrect ranking for Barrick Gold Corp., showing a total score of 85 out of 100. In fact, Barrick received a mark of 86 out of 100, tying for 45th place in the ranking.



An earlier version of this chart included incorrect marking information for Shaw Communications Inc., which received a mark of 66, but should have scored 67 out of 100, tying for 167th place in the ranking.



An earlier version of this chart included incorrect marking information for Seven Generations Energy Ltd., which received a mark of 65, but should have scored 67 out of 100, tying for 167th place in the ranking.
