CATA’s new Advocates-for-Change Caucus Now Deployed to Support Advocacy for Removing 51% Equity Definition (Women Owned Businesses)

Ottawa, ON...CATAAllianceCanada’s One Voice for Innovation lobby group has announced that its new Advocates-for-Change Caucus, a crowdsourced 1,400 member activist group, has been mobilized to reach out to decision makers at all levels, in order to help advance the Alliance’s advocacy to remove the systemic discrimination against women-founded and led businesses by setting the requirement of 51% ownership. Dropping below this threshold disqualifies women founded and led businesses from many programs set up to advance the growth of their enterprises.
