Canadian Coalition to Empower Women


Who We Are

The Canadian Coalition to Empower Women, spearheaded by the Canadian Federation of Business & Professional Women, was formed to advance equality between women and men, girls and boys in Canada; recognizing it is essential to build strong economies, establish more stable and just societies, and improve the quality of life for all women, men and their families in communities across Canada.

What we do…

Leverage the refreshed Women's Empowerment Principles (WEPs) initiative to engage and bring together the innovative private sector in Canada committed to developing and promoting women in the workplace with visionary community and governmental leaders.
