Womens Entrepreneur Week
- Jeanelle Mandes | May 22, 2020
This week is recognized as Women Entrepreneurs Week (May 17-23) in the province. We decided to take a look at some of Saskatchewan’s Indigenous Women Entrepreneurs.
As part of Women Entrepreneurs Week May 17-23, the Government of Saskatchewan released a statement to recognize the province’s 33,300 female business owners for their contributions to the economy and labour market.
“Saskatchewan women have built familiar brands and created markets across North America,” Minister Responsible for the Status of Women Tina Beaudry-Mellor said in a media release. “As we emerge from COVID-19 restrictions, I encourage residents as they look to support local businesses to also look for ways to support women led businesses who make significant contributions to the Saskatchewan economy.”
