About Us

The Business and Professional Women’s Club (BPW) is a non-sectarian, non-profit and non-partisan organization which promotes the interests of working women and works towards the improvement of the status of women in all sectors of society, especially in business, the professions and industry. BPW Greater Moncton is part of the Canadian Federation of Business and Professional Women’s Clubs as well as the International Federation of Business and Professional Women's Clubs.

We are "women working for working women". We work toward improving the economic, political, social and employment conditions of women worldwide.
