We urge our members to participate in decision-making across all fields – from business to politics – to ensure women’s voices are heard. But our sisterhood is about more than just professional advancement.

We form lasting friendships and give each other the support we need to succeed. So, if you’re looking for a community of like-minded women who will champion your success and lift you up along the way, BPW is the perfect place for you.


BPW develops the business, professional and leadership potential of women on all levels through advocacy, education, mentoring, networking, skill-building, and economic empowerment programs and projects across Canada and around the world.


To achieve a just and equal status of women at all levels and areas of society where decisions are taken in true partnership with men, based on mutual respect, for a more balanced and peaceful world.
