COVID-19 has exposed vulnerabilities in our social and economic systems and demonstrated it has a gendered impact. While all businesses in Canada and around the world have been affected, some have felt the effects more than others. COVID-19 has revealed women entrepreneurs are particularly vulnerable because of several factors: they tend to run smaller businesses, are less capitalized, and are heavily concentrated in the service sector.

During this webinar you will:

  • Hear expert advice on how to navigate the financial system and the programs available to women entrepreneurs
