It’s a great time to be a Woman in Business and to be a part of a strong and supportive networking group. The WBN’s core purpose is to support the business success of Canadian women and everything we do reflects that intent.

We strive to provide programming that helps our members and guests take steps to achieve their goals and find their version of success. We facilitate meaningful approaches to networking, embrace new ways of enriching our connections and raising awareness of our members. We embrace businesswomen of all ages, cultures, industries and professions. We are mentors, sharing experiences, challenges and wisdom, collaborating within the network, and ultimately the greater business community.
