Advancing gender Equity

Founded in 2005 in Montreal, FEM International is a visionary non-profit organization dedicated to promoting gender equality, economic rights and sustainable development.

Our Mission

Empowering young girls and women around the world, in developing countries and in Canada, to reach their full potential through the dynamics of socially responsible entrepreneurship, in a way that helps them become self-sufficient and create a better link with their communities and their local environments.

What we do

At the heart of our work to empower women are the three types of services that we provide:

  • Socially responsible start-up business training for young women in developing countries and women in Canada;
  • Access to networks at the local, national and international level, bringing together women from around the globe who share similar interests and who live under similar circumstances; and,
  • Access to market opportunities in Canada, the USA and other developed nations, through our own and our partners' initiatives.
