ODEY Algonquin Women’s Business Network.

ODEY Algonquin Women’s Business Network was a partnership between Kijicho Manito Madaouskarini Algonquin First Nation and Community Futures Development Corporation (CFDC) which ran from April 2020 – March 2023.

During this time, ODEY hosted training sessions that assisted women to start-up and scale-up their businesses and developed an Algonquin business network through those training sessions and virtual coffee dates. The project also created an inventory of women-led entrepreneur activities in the Algonquin community and conducted a detailed SWOT analysis.

Throughout the project, resources were developed including business-relevant blog posts, funding resources and business development resources. These resources remain available on this website; however, they will not be regularly updated – so some of the sources may be out of date.

For business support and inquiries, you can contact CFDC. The local CFDC in the Bancroft area can be found here: https://www.community-futures.ca/
