Regina and Saskatoon apparently are not the places to be in Canada, if you’re a woman – still.
At least, that’s the finding of a study done by the Canadian Centre for Policy Alternatives which highlights some of the best and worst places in Canada to be a woman.
Of 25 cities surveyed, Victoria comes out on top for the second year in a row. Windsor is at the bottom at 25.
Near the bottom is Saskatoon at 21. Regina comes in at 18.
For areas of economic security, Saskatoon ranks 23rd while Regina has the highest rates of women’s employment among the 25 cities, according to the authors of the study.
Women make up a third of elected officials in Saskatoon and the outlying regional districts.
And Queen city shows women holding two out of 11 elected seats on city council in Regina.
When the outlying regional municipalities are considered, women make up an average of 17% of elected officials in Regina.
