WEC is pleased to announce the launch of “Her Own Boss!”, a community-based project that explores the challenges in self-employment for visible minority immigrant women in the Lower Mainland of British Columbia, Northern and Eastern Ontario, and Eastern Newfoundland.


Our response to COVID-19

The Women’s Economic Council (WEC) is closely monitoring the instructions released by the Public Health Agency of Canada. The safety of our staff, volunteers, and participants are our top priority. The Public Health Agency of Canada encourages reduced exposure to gatherings of more than five people and implementing social distancing measures as a way to minimize the transmission of COVID-19 in the community.
