NB Women in Business Initiative Survey

September 15th, 2017

Dear Women Entrepreneurs of New Brunswick,

Women in Business/Femmes en Affaires NB have initiated a review and evaluation of the Women in Business Initiative (WBI) program. We look forward to engaging as many women business owners as possible in this process. This review is intended to identify the successes and challenges women entrepreneurs face in New Brunswick and the ways in which the WBI has supported and can continue to support NB women business owners.

The WBI is committed to providing valuable support in the areas of:

  • Access to Information and Capital
  • Business Management & Entrepreneurial Skills Development
  • Network Events/Activities and Gala Recognition
  • Export Development & Supplier Diversity
  • Productivity & Growth
  • Communication & Awareness

This survey is intended for all women entrepreneurs of New Brunswick, whether you have been involved in the WBI program or not.

The WBI must understand fully the environment (demographic, geographic, economic and social) in which women entrepreneurs provide their goods and services in order to strengthen the WBI program.

We have engaged the services of Fairwinds Training and Development to assist us in this evaluation process. We are very interested to hear your thoughts on the current environment and future opportunities.

Please click the link below to access the anonymous and confidential online survey, which will first take you through a few demographic questions to help get a clear picture of women-owned businesses in NB, and then will allow you to provide your feedback, thoughts, and recommendations on the WBI.


The feedback gathered here will be extremely valuable to us as we move forward with this important initiative. We greatly appreciate your time and consideration. The survey will be live until October 1st, 2017.

If you have any questions, please feel free to contact me at line.doiron@cbdc.ca

"I would like to thank you for picking Ben's Clothing for the retail consulting makeover.  I very much enjoyed talking to Barbara.  She has wonderful insites on what to do to refresh my store.  I was extremly excited of the ideas put together thats in my budget for now and also in the near future.
The 1st part of the seminar, had opened my eyes to the reality of my challenges and concerns, statistics, operating cost and marketing which is a huge part that can not be ignored. It's a must to have a list of issues to know it and control it.  This is a large part of my battles that I face but placed them in the back burner. 
When Barbara came into my store I wasn't sure what to expect because in the seminar she was leaning towards makeovers for a new store or toronto style store.  I had no idea that a little bit of paint in a different color will bring out what I want to promote.  She had alot of new ideas that are in the budget and I'm going to make it happen!
Thank you again for filling me in with the seminars that are offered.  I'm always willing to get informed and always moving forward."
