Federal funds support national hub for women’s entrepreneurship 

June 20, 2019

Ten institutions are collaborating through the Women Entrepreneurship Knowledge Hub, a federally funded national network and accessible digital platform for sharing research, resources, and best practices to increase female entrepreneurs in Canada. Minister of Small Business and Export Promotion Mary Ng stated that only 16% of small and medium enterprises in Canada are led by women, but added that these women contribute $150B to the economy and employ 1.5 million Canadians. Led by Ryerson University’s Diversity Institute, the Hub also includes Carleton University, Simon Fraser University, Mount Royal University, the University of Manitoba, the PARO Centre for Women’s Enterprise, Université de Montreal, Yukon College, OCAD University, and Dalhousie University. Carleton (1) | Carleton (2) (ON)
