The intent was by building relationships, making connections, supporting & learning & sharing with each that we could then promote & network together. That first monthly meeting, 65 women attended. The Parksville Qualicum Beach Women’s Business Network was in full swing!
Throughout the years, the network has continued to grow & evolve! In 1999, we became a not for profit society & our official constitution & bylaws were created, followed by a name change to more accurately reflect the geographical reach of our Membership. It was then, Oceanside Women’s Business Network was born.
Today OWBN continues to thrive, This year we are celebrating 30 years and we know for a fact that we are stronger together! We are proud that many of our founding members are still Active members today & we continue to be a member driven society!

Haven House is OWBN’s Charity of Choice.
At each of our monthly events, we sell 50/50 tickets to our members in an effort to fundraise for Haven House. These proceeds collected will be donated directly to Haven House during the month of February, as this is the month when we also fundraise for our OWBN Purses for Haven annual event.
