WEDO Canada believes that to truly achieve our full economic potential, we need women to reach their full potential.

Focused and supportive education resources for existing and aspiring women entrepreneurs will put us on the right track to achieve this. As part of the WEDO Canada mission, we will grant national scholarships to support a new generation of female entrepreneurs.
