In advance of International Women’s Day, Visa Canada announced the extension of Visa’s global grant program through a partnership with IFUNDWOMEN to support women entrepreneurs in Canada. Stacey Madge explained the goal is to identify women-owned small businesses most in need and support them as part of Canada’s post-pandemic recovery.

“The reality is, COVID-19 has had a disproportionate impact on women business owners. Together with IFUNDWOMEN, we are excited to provide a much-needed grant to help empower women entrepreneurs to tackle the unique challenges they face while better positioning them to lead our collective recovery, and we remain committed to championing Canada’s small business community.”
