Women in Business
Industry Canada statistics show that there were 950,000 self-employed women in Canada in 2011. From 2001 to 2011, the number of self-employed women grew by 23 percent.
The Women in Business initiative focuses on providing training and networking events for women in business while celebrating the successes within our region. Business Cape Breton hosts networking sessions designed to facilitate sharing of experiences and creating contacts among business women while gaining educational information from guest speakers. These speakers are selected based on growth trends and current demand in the business world. These training and networking events provide an opportunity for women to meet other women who are in business as well as meet the service providers who may be able to assist them with starting or expanding their business.
