ODEY Algonquin Women’s Business Network.

The CFDC has partnered with the Kijicho Manito Madaouskarini Algonquin First Nation to nurture existing & aspiring women entrepreneurs in the Algonquin Community.

The key objective of the Project is to encourage and support Algonquin women to become economic development leaders for their communities.

The Project will host training sessions to assist start-up and scale-up of their businesses, develop an Algonquin business network, create an inventory of women-led entrepreneur activities and conduct a detailed SWOT analysis.

Leveraging resources such as professional expertise and best practices from the CFDC will assist the Algonquin Community in developing their own resources and action plans.

There will also be an opportunity to expand the network to other Algonquin communities and other established women’s networks.
