BPW Membership

become a BPW Member

Clubs provide a “training ground” for developing leadership skills in a safe and supportive environment, allowing members to build networks and create lasting and supportive friendships at all levels of BPW. Members participate in a range of activities that lead to personal and professional development and career advancement.

A member of a local club is automatically a member of the district, provincial, national and international organizations. She is entitled to attend all BPW events.

BPW Canada is recognized for its many projects, from the Women's Empowerment Principles to Equal Pay awareness campaigns and annual submissions of Briefs to the Government including the need to declare a National Equal Pay Day, the fight against human trafficking and being a voice for the Indigenous people.
