Are you an immigrant women in business? The Immigrant Women’s Small Business Expo (IWSB), which was set to take place at the Metro Toronto Convention Centre on September 17, will now take place at the Daniels Spectrum, a self-proclaimed “cultural hub” just a few kilometres from the original venue.
The expo will provide ample opportunity for women to network and learn about business, as it has for the past four years.
For a $5 admission fee, attendees can spend the day viewing educational exhibits and attending seminars and workshops with speakers such as Mississauga-Streetsville MP Gagan Sikand and CEO of Chinese Canadian Voice Julie Suen. Topics of discussion throughout the day will include health and wellness, marketing, entrepreneurship and more.
Further to these conversations and lessons, the event’s website boasts that those in attendance will be celebrated, enlightened and empowered as immigrant women in business.
“We’ve always championed the fact that women matter, and we’ve sought to celebrate all the roles they fill in their family, career and community,” says Dwania Peele, founder of CSBW. “Immigrants, specifically, struggle in Canada’s labour market despite their many skills, and we are more than excited to be in Toronto with this rallying cry of support for immigrant women entrepreneurs across Ontario.”
