Oceanside Women's Business Network

The Oceanside Women’s Business Network (OWBN) is a vibrant and diverse group of women. Our members include professionals, entrepreneurs, and small business owners in many fields.

OWBN is a great opportunity for women to connect and share the work they’re doing, and potentially collaborate on projects with one another. Many new personal and business relationships have developed because of OWBN.

Members of other women’s business networks on Vancouver Island are invited to attend our meetings at the members’ rates.

In fact, all women, whether in business or not, are welcome. We encourage you to attend a meeting to explore career and business ideas, and to get to know other women in the community. Imagine what may develop with the connections you’ll make at OWBN!!

President’s Message 2018 – 2019




OWBN President Debbie Falkins Wilder
For me, this is the essence of what Oceanside Women’s Business Network (OWBN) is all about.

Three and a half short years ago, as I embarked on a new career, a friend told me, I had to go to an OWBN meeting because, it’s a fabulous group of ladies who will welcome you, mentor you and support you wherever they can.  She was right and fast forward to today… this is what motivates me every month to drive three hours round trip from Mill Bay to Parksville!

I am grateful for your vote of confidence and I am honoured to be the President of the Oceanside Women’s Business Network this year.  The Executive Board of Directors has been working hard to ensure our monthly dinner meetings will inspire you to develop balanced and lasting business relationships and network with purpose and meaning.

As Members, you are the “GOLD!”  Your ideas and suggestions are always welcome and your input can make OWBN the best it can be.  Let’s make 2018-2019 an interesting and lucrative year for all of us.

Women in business, supporting women in business – together we are stronger.
