Support Nova Scotia’s women in business:



International Women’s Day

We are back with our in-person breakfast celebration for International Women’s Day!

Join us Friday, March 8th from 7:30-11:30 am at the Halifax Marriott Harbourfront for the same fantastic networking event with a new, innovative format.

CWB members: $45 individual or $450 for a table

Future members & community: $60 individual or $600 for a table


Grab a coffee and build your community with women business owners and their supporters. Hear from a panel of your peers – each at a different stage of business – while you enjoy a light breakfast. This event is about celebrating and amplifying the incredible accomplishments of women entrepreneurs across the spectrum of business type and stage. We want you to feel included and inspired! This year we have created more space for the pre-breakfast networking with 3 lounge areas. In each area, you can visit some of our RBC Alliance of Young Women Entrepreneurs who will be showcasing and selling their wares, enjoy a morning cup of coffee (or two!) and connect with one another.

It’s our signature event, focused on connection and celebration, and we can’t wait to see you there.
