Women entrepreneurs are a growing force in Canada's economy, bringing unique perspectives, bolstering growth and innovation across diverse industries, and making substantial contributions to the business landscape.
The full and equal participation of women in the economy is not just the right thing to do; it's the smart thing to do. According to the World Bank, long-run gross domestic product (GDP) per capita would be on average 20% higher if gender employment gaps were closed. Studies estimate economic gains in the order of $5-6 trillion if women started and scaled new businesses at the same rate men do.
