Canadian Women Brand
Creating a Brighter Tomorrow for Canada’s Women-owned Businesses
Women-owned businesses are key drivers of economic growth in Canada but constant barriers continue to limit their potential – cultural stereotypes, lack of financing, absence of role models or mentors, access to information or other services… the list goes on.
It has been stated time and again that ‘By advancing women’s participation in the economy, Canada could add up to $150 billion in GDP’ and we need to better evaluate and address the challenges faced by women entrepreneurs.
Entrepreneurial diversity is not only essential for women-owned businesses but for that of the entire economy.
WBE Canada’s Canadian Women Brand Logo will play an important role for the growth of women entrepreneurs in Canada. It indicates that the product was not just ‘Made in Canada’ but ‘Made by a women-owned business’. It means that when you buy a product with this logo on it you are directly contributing to the growth of women-owned businesses in Canada, you are a champion and you are making a difference.
Buying from women-owned businesses is good for the economy. It’s good for our communities. It’s good for Canada.
