International Women’s Day 2022: PEI’s most influential women entrepreneurs

This year on March 8, 2022 is International Women’s Day. It’s a day marked to help foster gender equality by celebrating women and their accomplishments and create awareness of the countless contributions they have made over history and are continuing to do so today and into the future.

Here in Prince Edward Island, women are thriving as business owners and it shows. Despite a pandemic, we’ve had the pleasure of seeing many of these women adapt to and conquer the restrictions and forge ahead.

Just as water flows around an immovable object, they’ve found ways to maneuver around seemingly impossible obstacles to find new paths to success. Their presence, experience, and fortitude are what influence the next generation of women that will come after them.

On March 8th, International Women’s Day 2022, we want to bring attention to and highlight the female entrepreneurs that are shaping our economy and our future.


We want to hear from you. Tell us about a woman entrepreneur, or women entrepreneurs, on the Island who inspires you!
