Clinton, 66, is a likely candidate for the Democratic nomination in the next U.S. presidential election.
She was the 67th Secretary of State of the United States from 2009 to 2013. She was also Senator of the State of New York from 2001 to 2009.
She visited more than 80 countries as an advocate of human rights, democracy and equal opportunities for women and girls around the world.
"Too many women face ceilings that make it hard to see how far they can go. This holds back entire economies," Clinton told a sold-out crowd at the Palais des Congrès in downtown Montreal.
She also talked about the important role women play in developing nations, and in North America.
"Women on boards make companies more profitable ... Women play a key role in good governance and economic well being," Clinton said.
She also said she has not yet made up her mind about whether or not she'll run as a candidate in the upcoming presidential election.
Clinton, the wife of former U.S. President Bill Clinton, fought Barack Obama in the Democratic nomination in 2008.
