“Women entrepreneurs are vital to the quality of life we enjoy in Alberta and they continue to break glass ceilings in all fields. Their diverse perspectives in leadership mean that better decisions are being made for all Albertans.

“Running your own business is not an easy career choice, so I want to thank these incredible women for having the courage to take the lead and for making a difference in their communities. They are creating new opportunities and jobs to keep Alberta’s economy growing.

“I am proud to declare Nov. 19, 2019, as Women’s Entrepreneurship Day in Alberta – the first of its kind in Canada. We are delighted to recognize the female business owners who are leading our province into the future.”
