Canada's Most Inspiring Mompreneurs

Mompreneurs who' Made it Happen' Contest Winners

Canada's Most Inspiring Mompreneurs

Recently, YMC teamed up with UPS, and together we created a panel of judges who were given the task of finding Canada's Most Inspiring Mompreneurs. Women from all over Canada submitted their personal stories, describing their incredible and inspiring journeys. You can just imagine how difficult it was to choose our top six Mompreneurs. Our panel has finally given us the list of six amazing women,even though we thought that all the submissions were awesome.

Our Grand Prize winner of $1,000 CDN UPS Store Gift Certificate and business assessment is Janet Weldon, from Kitchener, Ontario. Janet opened the Urban Wellness Centre in October of 2011 and has shared her story and given us some tips to help other Mompreneurs make it happen!

Our five runner-ups are:

Alex Yates, from Victoria, BC (Alex Yates Travel)

Karyn Climans from Toronto, ON (Tail-Wags Helmet Covers)

Clare Kumar from Toronto, ON (Streamlife)

Sara Cohen from Toronto, ON (Fertility Law Canada)

Melissa Vroon from  Calgary, AB (Family Fun Canada)

All our winners have inspiring stories to share and great advice. Please visit our Mompreneurs: Making it Happen Hub, read about how and why these women started their unique and successful businesses. Who knows, perhaps these Mompreneurs will give you the motivation to start that business that you may be thinking about!

Be inspired!

Congrats to all our winners,

Hey kids, you're going to camp!

Camp Green Acres and Scouts Canada Contest Winners

I must say that I loved giving away these two camp experiences, because as a mom, I can imagine how thrilled our winners were to be able to tell their children that they get to go to camp this summer—on us!

The winner of the week at Camp Green Acres "Traditional Day Camp" is Alexandra Doss-Collbran of Toronto, Ontario.

The winner of her choice of a week at a Scouts Canada summer camp or $500.00 gift voucher for the Scouts Canada online store is Allison Cupid of Edmonton, Alberta.
