The RBC Canadian Women Entrepreneur Awards are the pre-eminent national business awards recognizing the country’s leading female entrepreneurs. The RBC Canadian Women Entrepreneur Awards recognizes female business owners from across Canada who make impressive and substantial contributions to the local, Canadian or global economy.
Candidates share an entrepreneurial vision in pursuing their dreams. The awards recognize business women from three major regions across Canada: East, Central and West. All nominees were required to submit thorough applications, which are reviewed and judged by a panel and subject to a due diligence performed by KPMG.
The program is an initiative of Women of Influence, an organization dedicated to advancing Canadian women.
From a pool of thousands of nominees, 23 finalists from coast to coast have been selected to represent seven award categories. The winners will be honoured at the Annual Awards Gala on Nov. 20 in Toronto.
