Introducing SMART Programs from WeBC
WeBC is delighted to launch SMART Programs to help women entrepreneurs across Canada to develop their business skills!
With our SMART Programs, you can expand your knowledge on topics like HR, Financial Fitness and Marketing through self-paced learning, plus gain wrap-around support through advisory services and resiliency training.

The platform launches December 2023! Sign up for our eBlasts to be notified when registration opens >>>
