At Best for Women, our ethos is lifting up and celebrating the women and allies in our network because we believe confidence comes through connection.
The glass ceiling is real and takes a toll on women in leadership, sales and customer service.
Our clients are empathetic and finding their way in a male dominated world: they are sick and tired of feeling sick and tired.
We believe that your lived experience is unique and not everyone's needs are the same.

We recognize and are grateful to continue learning about the traditional territories where we live, work and play.
Together, we honour all Indigenous Peoples – First Nations, Métis and Inuit – for their cultures, their languages, their teachings and learnings through storytelling, their stewardship and protection of the lands, waters and ecology that have shaped this country since time began.
The Town of Muskoka is the traditional home of the Anishinaabeg, specifically the Chippewa, Ojibwa and Potawatomi peoples, under the terms of the Robinson-Huron Treaty #61 of 1850, and the Williams Treaties of 1923.
The City of Hamilton is situated upon the traditional territories of the Erie, Neutral, Huron-Wendat, Haudenosaunee and Mississaugas. This land is covered by the Dish With One Spoon Wampum Belt Covenant, which was an agreement between the Haudenosaunee and Anishinaabek to share and care for the resources around the Great Lakes. The City further acknowledges that this land is covered by the Between the Lakes Purchase, 1792, between the Crown and the Mississaugas of the Credit First Nation.
The City of Montreal is situated on the unceded traditional territory of the Kanien’kehà:ka, a place which has long served as a site of meeting and exchange amongst many First Nations including the Kanien’kehá:ka of the Haudenosaunee Confederacy, Huron/Wendat, Abenaki, and Anishinaabeg.
