Improving Prosperity for Niagara’s Women Business Owners

This 36-month project worked to increase the economic prosperity of women business owners by improving business supports and services in the Niagara Region together with community partners including economic development agencies, chambers of commerce, financial institutions, women’s organizations, and Brock University. 

At the completion of the 36 month project, The Greater Niagara Chamber of Commerce “Women In Niagara Council” took over the existing programming, and is continuing to serve women in the community through Success Circles and the Niagara Women Entrepreneurs Mentorship Program.
