Inclusive Entrepreneurship and Advocacy at CanWCC

Inclusive Entrepreneurship and Advocacy at CanWCC

The Canadian Women’s Chamber of Commerce (CanWCC) is deeply committed to inspiring inclusion and providing a powerful voice for women-identified and non-binary business owners, founders, and entrepreneurs across Canada. 

Before 2018, a crucial advocacy platform was absent for this demographic within Canada’s chambers of commerce, leaving them without a dedicated voice at the policy level.

Recognizing this gap, CanWCC emerged as a driving force for change, establishing a vibrant community dedicated to amplifying the voices of underrepresented groups nationwide. Our commitment and focus is on creating opportunities for collective action and impact. 

CanWCC stands as a beacon of change, working to create equal opportunities and equitable conditions for women-identified and non-binary entrepreneurs to thrive in business.
