Newfoundland’s francophone women will take part in separate seminars, one in French and one in English, and in 10 one-day sessions on entrepreneurship, business plan development, web sites, e-business, markets, marketing strategies and business management in their area. The women will be empowered to maintain strategic links between francophones and anglophones in the Labrador West community and to improve their economic prosperity by creating a business network, starting a business and participating in the socio-economic life of their community.
