The Women’s Enterprise Centre of Manitoba recognizes the growing concern around the COVID-19 virus and the unease many business owners are feeling, especially as we face more changes to our daily routines and future plans.
Like you, our main priorities are keeping our clients, staff and their families safe while maintaining our ongoing advisory connection to the women-owned and partnered businesses we serve.

In cases where programming can be delivered online, that option will be made available to clients registered in workshops currently under way.

Please note the modifications and/or postponements of the upcoming scheduled training activity, seminars and networking events:

On behalf of all of us here at the Centre, thank you in advance for your understanding. If you have any questions, please contact us by email firstname.lastname@example.org or by phone 204.988.1860.
