July 9, 2019
A note from Dr. Mary Bluechardt, President and Vice-Chancellor, Mount Saint Vincent University:
“I am delighted by the wonderful support of the Centre for Women in Business (CWB) announced by the Atlantic Canada Opportunities Agency today. On behalf of the Mount, a sincere thanks to The Honourable Bernadette Jordan, Minister of Rural Economic Development and Member of Parliament for South Shore-St. Margarets, and CWB executive director Tanya Priske for their leadership and collaboration.
The Mount is proud to be home to the CWB – Canada’s only University-based business development resource centre for women. Through an array of programs, the CWB brings valuable expertise to thousands of women entrepreneurs at all stages, and to Mount students and projects.
The Federal government continues to be a key partner in the delivery of quality CWB programs in support of women entrepreneurs in our region. When women entrepreneurs succeed, our families, communities and entire region benefit greatly.”
