This paper compares the network of Canadian corporate directorships to the networks of ten rich nations described by Stokman, Ziegler, and Scott. The analysis tests claims about the exceptional weakness and disorganization of the Canadian capitalist class, due to high foreign ownership and dependence on resource extraction. The Canadian network is neither unusually sparse nor fragmented; there is no pronounced cleavage between, or subordination of, non-financial corporations to financial corporations; nor do the foreign-controlled corporations constitute an alternative centre or fragment of the network. It resembles the networks of countries such as Germany and France. The findings are consistent with the managerial and class cohesion models of the network, which emphasize its unity.
