In 1994, Pacific Economic Development Canada (PacifiCan), which was then known as Western Economic Diversification Canada (WD), identified critical gaps in access to financing and services for women entrepreneurs. To fill these gaps, they committed funds to create Women’s Enterprise Initiatives (WEI’s) in the four western provinces. The Women’s Enterprise Initiative includes WeBC, Alberta Women Entrepreneurs, Women Entrepreneurs of Saskatchewan and Women’s Enterprise Centre of Manitoba. Since 1995, we have collectively provided over $220M in direct and leveraged financing and created or maintained over 7,700 jobs in Canada.
