“The pandemic has impacted all small businesses across the country, but those run by women have been disproportionately impacted,” said Stacey Madge, president and country manager of Visa Canada. “We were so inspired by the submissions of the first ‘She's Next Grant Program’ early this year, that we decided to launch it again, to continue making a meaningful difference and help fuel the collective recovery of the small business community.”
