We believe in the power of partnerships.

One way to showcase your business and discover potential opportunities is to volunteer. We offer a variety of volunteer opportunities to help you build relationships and encourage business growth.

Explore some of the opportunities below.


Our community of Certified WBEs and supplier diversity professionals is eager to learn. We are constantly looking for engaging speaker, trainers, mentors and great content. If you have a topic that will propel our audience forward, we want to hear from you!


WBE Canada loves to hear about the success stories from our community. From time to time we feature these stories on our website, in WBE Canada Magazine, e-updates, presentations and resource materials. Let us know about your achievements - we can't wait to celebrate with you.


WBE Canada hosts and attends many events across Canada and the US. Occasionally we look for support with events. You must be a representative of a WBE Certified Business, Corporate Member organization or Partner Organization in good standing to be a volunteer at our events.


WBE Canada is governed by a voluntary Board of Directors. Our Board works through 5 Board Committees. We're constantly looking for sharp individuals to help us move to the next level to create even greater impact. If you are a representative of Certified WBE or Member organization eager to support us, we want to hear from you!
