The Regional Women in Business Network is an informal network of business women and professionals who have come together to support one another within the business community and to address the distinct needs of women in business.

By providing professional services and networking opportunities, our members will be able to learn more efficient ways to operate or start their businesses, making them more profitable.

The Network is financially supported by Atlantic Canada Opportunities Agency (ACOA) and the Grand Bank Development Corporation (GBDC).

Regional Women in Business Network has been established to:

To establish an informal Women in Business Network, bringing together local women entrepreneurs and potential entrepreneurs.

To hold business development and management seminars and workshops as identified by the network.

To establish an informal mentoring program for new business start-ups by women.

To organize and hold an Annual Regional Women in Business Trade Show for the areas of the Burin Peninsula.
