Support Nova Scotia’s women in business:



Women in Business Implementation Fund

The Women in Business Implementation Fund (WiBIF) directly supported over 150 women-owned businesses to implement small-scale projects related to their business operations, business transformations, and recovery measures.

The fund opened with the support of the Government of Canada through the Atlantic Canada Opportunities Agency (ACOA).
