April 28, 2014 7:10 AM | News

Elmwood-Transcona MP Lawrence Toet is inviting local organizations to propose projects to advance economic opportunities for women.

A call for proposals has been opened by Status of Women Canada until June 13, 2014 for project objectives will fall into three thematic areas:

  • Increasing or strengthening economic opportunities for entrepreneurial and professional women
  • Advancing women in various sectors through mentorship/sponsorship
  • Collaborating to advance the financial preparedness of women

“I encourage all interested women and community organizations in Elmwood-Transcona to apply to further opportunities for women and girls in our community to build successful careers and businesses,” Toet said in a statement.
