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.


This year WEC attended the Canadian Conference on Social Enterprise. We met SE movers and shakers, shared WEC’s heart for women-centred CED, and discovered why SE is now an international movement. Check out our big takeaways from the conference.
