Working together to support your business

Northern Development has partnered with WeBC to provide Northern BC business owners with free access to WeBC’s resource guides!

WeBC has supported women business owners all over BC for nearly three decades with business loans, advisory services, training and mentorship. WeBC’s resource guides answer some of the most common questions our Business Advisors hear, and help you to build the essential business skills you need to lead your business.

As part of our partnership, these resources are available to everyone in Northern BC! You may also check out other WeBC programs and services, including free advisory support, training and mentorship.

Other WeBC Programs and Services

WeBC approaches funding differently from traditional financial institutions. Our eligibility criteria is broader and we provide each funded business with complimentary services that support the woman entrepreneur in developing and strengthening her business.

Our core funding program provides business loans of up to $150,000, and women who apply for $50,000 or less may qualify for our Equal Access to Capital (EAC) program which does not require specific security. We are also the BC Loan Fund Partner of the WEOC National Loan Fund.
