Supplier diversity is about business growth. Large corporations, organizations and government agencies need a wide range of services and products, and are increasingly seeking diverse and innovative suppliers to provide them. Certification as a Women Business Enterprise by WEConnect International or WBE Canada enables you to increase your access to contract opportunities with corporations and governments nationally and internationally. Certification demonstrates that your business is at least 51% managed and controlled by a woman or women. This is very important for multinational corporations and government procurement departments that want to demonstrate and measure diversity in their procurement practices.
The Women’s Enterprise Centre of Manitoba is the certifying organization in Manitoba for both WEConnect International and WBE Canada. Log onto their websites and follow the certification application process as outlined by each organization.
If you have questions about Supplier Diversity, please contact the Women’s Enterprise Centre of Manitoba by telephone (204-988-1860 or 1-800-203-2343) or email.
