We are a not-for-profit and grassroots organization that remains focused on addressing the many unique challenges facing women as entrepreneurs and primary family caregivers. Since our launch in 1995, we have continued to diversify the range and reach of our programs and services to meet the changing socio-economic environments of our communities and the growing needs and aspirations of women in Northern Ontario.
At PARO Centre for Women's Enterprise, we seek to empower women within their communities, strengthen small business and promote community economic development (CED) through integrated and women-centered program delivery. From training and business coaching, to networking events and peer lending circles, all of our innovative programs and services are designed to increase the self-sufficiency and success of women, families and communities in the North.
