If you’re reading this, you may be thinking about starting your own business or would like to learn more about what it takes to become an entrepreneur.

Maybe you’re here because you own a business, and are interested in exploring ways to grow and reach new customers; you might have been down that road already but hit some stumbling blocks along the way.

Or maybe entrepreneurship isn’t necessarily your thing, and you want to make an impact as an intrapreneur: a stand-out leader or influencer within your organization.

If any of this sounds familiar, you’ve come to the right place: an entire community of women who are exploring these same ideas and looking to meet other women with similar goals.

We’re here to connect you and help you find the expert advice, training and inspiration you need to make big things happen in your business or career.

Now let’s get started!

Strengthen your business skills with one of our certificate-level workshop series offered at no cost to our members!

We’ve got several business development skills workshops throughout the year, and they have been designed specifically for our CWB members interested in advancing their business leadership skills.


This is your invitation to join us every month as we serve up a POWER Lunch featuring workshops from some of the business experts who make up our membership, along with Q&As and fresh lunch.



Sponsored by TD Bank, our monthly breakfasts have always ranked among our most popular networking events.

Each feature small group networking, hot breakfast offered at no cost to our members, and facilitated business discussions for both start-up and established business owners.


You’ve got a great business idea, but you’re not sure what your next step should be, or how to formulate a plan of action: That’s where we come in!


If you are thinking about starting a business, have recently started and need some guidance, or are looking at new business opportunities, this online business planning program is for you. This eight-week program includes modules on developing and validating your business idea, designing a marketing plan and financial plan, how to manage your operations, and all the resources to help you complete your business plan and source potential financing for your business.

CWB’s Business Planning: Blueprint for Success is an online program facilitated by a CWB business advisor in a collaborative, safe learning environment with other like minded women in business. All you need is a computer, reliable internet connection and a headset.

It’s our most in-demand series to date. AMMP is designed to function as a virtual advisory board for your business, and offers skills training developed to meet each participant where they are in the evolution and growth of their business.


Canadian women business owners are beginning to recognize that in order to be included, you have to be where the action is, and be well-prepared in advance. Did you know that there is a program that connects women entrepreneurs seeking larger markets with organizations that wish to do business with diverse suppliers? We are here to tell you all about it, and to show you how to maximize it through opportunities to connect with corporate Canada.
