This is a group that provides Ottawa women in business with networking possibilities & support without the exorbitant membership fees like other networking business groups.

Our mission is to offer professional business women with comfortable, casual opportunities to discuss yours buisness needs and to partner with other Ottawa Connected Women.  It is a place to share new ideas and learn new strategies for your business.  We even socialize now-and-again!

Everyone has something to offer! Come find out what that is!

Once you become a member:

You must login to the website at least every 6 months, if not we will remove you and ask you to rejoin when you have more time.

You must show up to events.  If you RSVP yes, and don't show up, we will mark you as a NO SHOW.  We reserve the right to remove members who NO SHOW at our events.  We make reservations at various venues and if we have NO SHOWs we lose the right to use their facilities.  We consider this a serious offence because it affects everyone.

*We are proud to not have any membership fees.  However, we reserve the right to increase them in the future. This group is currently funded by the Main Organizer, Ayn MacDonald. From time to time, we charge for certain events. Most events are free, if there is a small fee, it will be clearly outline in each specific event.

I started the group because there wasn't any other type of group like this. I've met some great folks in the group who have become close friends and have also met some amazing business owners.
