Foreign Policy Magazine has listed the 500 most powerful in the world and 10 Canadians make the cut.
The list, which FP says represents 0.000007 per cent of the world's population, is broken into categories indicating the source of the person's power. The silos are politics, bully pulpit, force, brains, money and good and evil, with many on the list falling into multiple categories.
While it seems to be conventional wisdom that American power is in decline, U.S. citizens still dominate, taking up 143 of the 500 spots. The USA's next closest competitor on the list is China, with 38 spots.
Politicians and bureaucrats make up the lion's share of the Canadian contingent, with nearly half of the country's list overlapping with Hill Times' recent survey of the most powerful people in Ottawa. Neither list includes any Canadian women in the top 10.
Mark Carney, recently appointed governor Bank of England, is conspicuously absent from the list, a fact noted by users on Reddit.
You can see Canada's contribution to the 0.000007 per cent, in no particular order, in the slideshow below.
