“I am proud to declare Nov. 19 as Women’s Entrepreneurship Day in Alberta.
“Starting your own business has never been easy, but Alberta’s female entrepreneurs have made a leap of faith and accepted the challenge of becoming their own boss.
“This past year has been especially challenging. The stresses of the economy and the pandemic have taken a toll on everyone in our province, but especially on our business owners.
“I want to commend the innovative and creative women entrepreneurs in our province who adapted to the unimaginable, and found new ways to connect with their clients and the community. You continue to amaze me and I am extremely proud of your success.
“Thank you for your dedication, passion and perseverance. Your contributions to your communities and the economy are making Alberta a better place to live, work and play.”
