Our History


The Women’s Business Network has been providing networking opportunities for over 35 years and continues to evolve and embrace today’s women in business. A forward-thinking, inspiring organization, the WBN supports and celebrates the growth and success of all its members.

Member volunteers work on committee initiatives, creating opportunities and an environment that helps the growth of businesswomen’s personal and professional brand.

The WBN believes in paying it forward. Three Annual Scholarships celebrate the accomplishments of female students at Carleton University, the University of Ottawa and Algonquin College.
