Announcing TOP 100 Canada’s Total Mom Pitch

Updated: Nov 27, 2020



Presented by The Scotiabank Women Initiative™ powered by Visa Canada, This national initiative is breaking down barriers that women face when it comes to launching and growing their business – a crucial factor in helping the Canadian economy thrive.


We are so proud.

This month, all across Canada, moms sat down and took a chance on something they truly believe in. They took control of their situation, and invested in themselves and their futures. We are absolutely honoured to announce that over 700 women nationally have applied for Canada’s first annual Total Mom Pitch!


The program highlights female founders who own a small business while supporting all applicants from around the country to tap into Canada's best resources through the Total Mom Small Business Bundle. Canada’s Total Mom Pitch presented by Total Mom Inc, in partnership with The Scotiabank Women Initiative™ & powered by Visa Canada .


Our applicants barely know one another and have already been supporting one another by truly showing the spirit of women supporting women. Together, we continue to show up, grow and learn to trust one another by letting go of past experiences that no longer serve us. The truth is when we come together and truly give, we receive as well.


Between connecting and voting for one another, we have seen these incredible women supporting complete strangers across the country. The common thread that has brought us together has been motherhood & business.


So in light of that, we started a closed FB group called Total Mom Business mom entrepreneurs from coast to coast are connecting and sharing their stories.




We are seeing the network grow, the community come together and this is the start of something special. Something we didn’t realize would come together THIS BIG thanks to each and every one of you showing up and standing for your passion projects knowing the impact that you are making.


This is why we strive to connect ambitious moms with successful female leaders who will help them see potential gaps in their start-up, and avoid expensive mistakes and heartaches.


Semi-finalists will get to highlight their business in front of women in leadership from some of Canada’s largest business ecosystems.


Without further ado, these are our OFFICIAL TOP 100 Canadian businesses for Canada’s Total Mom Pitch!!


These 100 moms are one step closer to receiving $10,000 cash towards growing their business, and $20,000 of business services to help them move strategically and successfully along the way! Along with this is the opportunity to make connections with investors, powerful introductions and genuine connections with other moms going through this as well!
