Strengthening Ecosystem Supports for Women Entrepreneurs
Ontario Inclusive Innovation (i2) Action Strategy
To inform i2 policies and practice, this report highlights the lessons learned from a comprehensive genderbased assessment of Ontario small business, innovation and social enterprise organizations. Activities included secondary analyses of Statistics Canada data, an online survey of 117 mainstream and women-focused intermediaries, 25 onsite interviews with leaders of Ontario business support organizations, and six regional workshops. A capstone conference was held at the Telfer Centre for Executive Leadership at the University of Ottawa in June 2019.
