Silent Auction

Help Us Support Canadian Women-Owned Businesses!

Women Founders have come a long way in Canada over the past 10 years, but there are still miles to go. Statistics Canada found out that...

  • Women-owned businesses are smaller, but their growth is stronger.
  • Canadian Women-Owned Businesses contribute to over 20% of jobs in Canada.
  • Canadian Women-Owned Businesses make 58% less than their male counterparts and get access to less than 5% of corporate procurement dollars.
WBE Canada is committed to supporting Canadian Women-Owned Businesses as they seek to land corporate & government contracts and impact how business is done across industries. As part of our 10th Annual Conference & Gala we decided to hold a silent auction to support women's entrepreneurial ecosystem.

2-in-1 - Impact & Fun

Not only is WBE Canada's 2019 Silent Auction fun, but 100% of the proceeds will be used to fund projects like…
  • WBE Ambassador Program - This initiative is led by WBE Canada’s Supplier Advisory Committee and is aimed to encourage networking, engagement and support for female founders across Canada.
  • Tools For Growth Online Library - Training resources to increase preparedness of women-owned businesses for large corporate and government contracts.
  • WBE Mentorship Program - This program will increase support for female founders in a variety of areas, from business support, through capability scale up to leadership and personal development.
