    Bolstering supports for new entrepreneurs and professionals at all levels of business promotes an inclusive economy that creates more opportunity for job growth and innovation. That is why the Government of Canada supports organizations such as the Prince Edward Island Business Women’s Association (PEIBWA), enabling women in PEI’s workforce to continue to benefit from the organization’s education and advocacy services, leadership workshops, mentoring and other essential programming. 

    Sean Casey, Member of Parliament for Charlottetown, on behalf of the Honourable Navdeep Bains, Minister of Innovation, Science and Economic Development and Minister responsible for the Atlantic Canada Opportunities Agency (ACOA), today announced program funding for PEIBWA. 

    Through its Business Development Program, ACOA is providing a non-repayable contribution of $304,086 over two years to PEIBWA to support women in PEI by providing business advisory services, access to resources and tools, professional and business skills development, networking opportunities and community outreach. 

    These investments build on commitments made by the Government of Canada and the four Atlantic provinces to drive economic growth in the region through the Atlantic Growth Strategy, by supporting strategic initiatives and organizations that help diversify and advance job opportunities within the business community.

    Congratulations Hannah Bell

    Hannah Bell Wins Seat in District 11 By-Election

    On behalf of the Board of Directors of PEI Business Women’s Association, we congratulate Hannah Bell on winning the District 11 by-election. She ran a great campaign and demonstrated incredible leadership on the campaign trail. We are proud to see another woman in leadership within the PEI Government. We are confident Hannah will represent her constituents and be a strong voice in the legislature for her district as well as on women's issues.  


    She will be missed by the board, staff and membership of PEI Business Women's Association and we wish her much success in her new political career. 

    Under Hannah's direction, and with the support of the incredible PEIBWA staff, the organization has flourished in the past 5 years. We have seen strong growth, new programming and more diversity within the organization.  

    Hannah leaves behind a strong organization with committed, talented staff. Hannah will be working with the PEIBWA board and staff until the end of 2017 as she transitions out of her position and will remain available as a volunteer consultant in early 2018. The PEI Business Women's Association board have started the search process and the new Executive Director will be announced at the AGM.  Until then, it is business as usual at PEIBWA.
