Tsuts’weye supports women entrepreneurs in the Shuswap.

A new project supporting female entrepreneurs has been launched in the Shuswap.  Tsuts’weye is a three-year, federally funded initiative through Western Economic Diversification Canada and facilitated locally through Community Futures Shuswap. The project supports women-owned or women led enterprises in the start-up, expansion or ongoing operational phase of business in the Shuswap.

Tsuts’weye means butterfly in Secwepemc and is symbolic of the “butterfly effect”. When one woman is empowered in a community the effects can often be powerful and far-reaching.

THE FOUR PROJECT PILLARS TO SUPPORT WOMEN ARE:
