Business and Professional Women - BPW Canada

The Canadian Federation of Business and Professional Women is a non-sectarian, non-profit, and non-partisan organization that works to improve the economic, political, social and employment conditions of working women in Canada. We provide a training ground for developing professional, business and leadership potential in a safe and supportive environment, enabling members to build skills, networks and create lasting friendships.

BPW Canada was founded in 1930, at the same time as the International Federation. The International Federation, which has Consultative 1 Status at the United Nations Economic and Social Council, now includes clubs in more than 95 countries around the world.  Membership in a local club includes membership in the provincial, national and international Federations thereby encouraging participation at any and all such events. 

BPW Canada has been recognized for its many projects over the years, from the  Women's Empowerment Principles to Equal Pay awareness campaigns and submission of Resolutions including the need to declare Equal Pay Day Nationally, the fight against human trafficking and being a voice for the Indigenous people. Organizations such as the United Nations and other foreign governments from all over the world have acknowledged and applauded BPW's efforts to improve conditions for all women.  Our mission, vision, values and principles guide us to our ultimate goal which is to improve conditions for all women.
