At WEC, our vision is to achieve economic security for every woman! Our knowledge sharing projects bring diverse organizations and stakeholders from across Canada together into collaboration to help each other fulfil our mandates to serve and empower women.Our GBA+ project aims to spark a national conversation about Gender Based Analysis + with Canadian organizations.

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.

Are you a feminist organization located in Quebec and want to increase your visibility to impact women significantly? Do you care about intersectional feminist issues? Do you believe that the community has an important role to play in bringing about change in the name of equality between humans? If you answered yes to these questions, you are proof that this second edition must take place!

"I was so excited"

The Women’s Economic Council is a gathering of women-centred community economic development organizations and practitioners. We are a national charitable organization helping Canadian women, especially marginalized women and those at risk of poverty, achieve their economic goals.

We work with community organizations, helping to connect, nurture, and support.
