Business Women in International Trade (BWIT)

BWIT supports Canadian women entrepreneurs in international trade by representing and advocating their commercial and economic interests as they travel along the path to export success.

Happy International Women's Day

The theme for this year is inspiring change, and at BWIT we are continually changing and working to support women-owned businesses. Amidst all of the excitement surrounding this special time of year, we are extremely excited to announce the launch of a specialized directory for women owned businesses within Industry Canada's Canadian Company Capabilities (CCC) database.

This is your opportunity to extend awareness of your products and services to over 5 million visitors a year – all for free!

The CCC houses over 50,000 Canadian companies showcasing their goods and services to attract potential buyers, distributors and partners from around the world. Garnering over 5 million visitors annually, the specialized directory is an invaluable resource for all women-owned businesses, to promote products and services to procurement professionals from around the world.
