Our shared role: Helping boost women's economic engagement

Canada-United States Council for Advancement of Women Entrepreneurs and Business Leaders Members

Each of the women on our Council is a success in her own right. Yet it’s our passion to elevate other women in business that drives our commitment to this Council. The desire to give back—through supporting and serving other women in business—motivates us.

No two countries share deeper or broader relations than Canada and the United States.

We are bound together by our history, our values, our economy, our environment, and our resolve to improve the lives of our citizens. Our close relationship and ongoing collaboration allow us to successfully meet any challenges we may face over the coming years, and to build a prosperous future for the people of both countries.”
