Support Nova Scotia’s women in business:




Business dreams? You’ve come to the right place.

The Centre for Women in Business is dedicated to helping women across the province succeed as entrepreneurs through exposure, connection and learning. This includes one-on-one business advice, business skills training, trade missions, networking and a membership program designed to develop and support women in business across the province. 

We’ve helped our members and clients launch new business ideas, propel established companies to new levels of success, and thrive as owners, CEOs and industry leaders. We understand entrepreneurs at every level. In fact, our team is made up of entrepreneurs and business experts. We get it and know how to help.

The Centre for Women in Business opened in 1992 and operate with the support of Mount Saint Vincent University (MSVU) and the Atlantic Canada Opportunities Agency (ACOA).
