The women who participated were very grateful to share time and space with other women entrepreneurs. Many of the businesses received COVID-19 loan and grant support through MFCBC and were happy to share how the funds helped them keep their business operating through the pandemic. Many of the Métis women at the conference also received loans from MFCBC through the traditional loan program. They expressed their appreciation to the staff for guiding them through the process and providing support along the way.
On October 12 & 13, 2022, MFCBC hosted 18 Métis Women at the First Métis Women Entrepreneur Conference in Vancouver, BC
The conference was an opportunity to bring together strong, like-minded women to share their experience as entrepreneurs and learn new techniques to build their businesses.
We wish to thank those who participated and look forward to continuing to provide support to our Métis Women Entrepreneur’s and future events.
