WE CANADA

Canada is the home of the first ever ETF launched in 1990. The Canadian Chapter of Women in ETFs was launched in November of 2014 and has over 100 members from across the ETF Ecosystem including ETF and Index providers, Broker Dealers, Exchanges, ETF Investors and ETF Service Providers from the legal and custodial communities.

We seek to:

  • Increase the proportion of women joining the ETF industry
  • Build a pipeline of women leaders for the ETF and broader Investment Industry
  • Amplify the voice of women leaders including prominent roles at conferences, sitting on boards, and holding senior leadership positions.

WE Canada offers many opportunities for sponsors to gain recognition - internally and externally - as a leader in supporting women in financial services.

WE CANADA | INSIDE ETFs BREAKFAST
Annual Women in ETFs Breakfast

Representing $1.1 trillion of assets in Canada, women are a source of untapped wealth for advisors and fund firms. Despite recognizing the need for financial advice, 87% of women looking for a financial advisor say they can’t find one they can connect with.

Sponsored by Women in ETFs, this panel will focus on bridging the gap in your communications, ensuring you aren't missing out on connecting with this very important client base.

Moderated by Pat Dunwoody, Executive Director, the Canadian ETF Association, the panel will feature Judy Parodi and Paulette Filion, founders of Strategy Marketing, a firm dedicated to marketing to female investors.
