The Women’s Economic Council (WEC) is a national organization advocating for women-centred community economic development (CED) in Canada. We are the only non-profit that supports networks of like-minded organizations that help women-centred CED flourish across the country. Our mission is to advance every woman’s participation in building resilient and inclusive economies, especially women who experience multiple systemic barriers. We achieve our objectives through consultations, networking, research and advocacy to understand and address the challenges women experience by creating sustainable livelihoods.
