The number of Black members on the boards of the 100 largest companies on the TSX by market capitalization has more than tripled over the past year,
CBC News has found. There are at least 26 current Black board members, and 18 were appointed since July 2020.
Assuming that the total number of board seats has stayed relatively constant,
that’s an increase from 0.7 per cent to 2.35 per cent.
CBC News used company websites and public records to identify Black board members and
had that information confirmed by each company where possible, although some did not respond.
One of those new board members is Lori-Ann Beausoleil.
