Meet Your Host

Hi! I’m Maria, mom, teacher, personal finance blogger, and now summit host.

I’m a total money nerd. But I was completely overwhelmed and confused when I first wanted to start investing. The market seemed so confusing. Now I’m a comfortable DIY investor who understands what I’m invested in.

I’ve attended and participated in virtual summits in the past. And have always been disappointed with lack of the female representation, even though there are some incredibly smart, amazing female voices in the personal finance space.

Well that under-representation changes now. It’s time for Canadian women to have a safe place to learn from and with each other about money. And this year we are getting confident with our investments.

All The Details


The Women Can Money Virtual Summit will run from May 10 – 12, 2023 with a variety of presentations to choose from each day.


You can tune into the summit from anywhere with internet access. Yes that’s right, you can watch the videos from your couch in your yoga pants while having a bad hair day.


Presentations are max 45 minutes in length. And The presentations will be available for 48-hours to encourage you to stop waiting for the right time and take action along with hundreds of other Canadian women.


As an attendee you’ll have a chance to win daily prizes just for opening and responding to your email.

Canadian Women, This One's All About You

There are a lot of summits, trainings, and workshops out there. So what makes this one different?

This is the only personal finance summit dedicated specifically to Canadian women. This year’s summit theme is investing.  There are only women presenters talking about investing topics relevant to women.  There are advanced topics and sessions for women just getting started.

This is a judgement free zone full of  women who want to help other women.

And I don’t know about you, but I don’t have hours and hours to stare at my screen and watch slide deck after slide deck (I’d much rather be scrolling social media 🤣). In the Women Can Money Summit, each presentation is max 45 minutes of jam packed actionable information specific to Canadian women.

With all of the information the speakers are sharing you will definitely want to watch them more than once.

It sure is! There are a lot of offerings out there for general personal finance, but this one has been created specifically for Canadian Women and their unique perspectives.  When women learn from other women they can see what’s possible.

The summit runs from May 10 – 12, 2023.

Each video will be available for 48-hours. However, you can grab the VIP All Access Pass to get lifetime access to all of the videos, premium upgrades from our speakers, private podcast so you can listen to the presentations on the go without having to watch your screen,  quarterly workshops, monthly check-ins and a safe space to connect with others throughout the year.  And if you sign up for the VIP All Access Pass before the summit starts you will get a bonus 1:1 with the host Maria and be entered to win 1 of 3 – $100 cash prizes. You won’t want to miss it!

Absolutely not.  The only person you’ll get emails from once you sign up is me, Maria.  I will be sending you updates about the summit as well as a daily recap email with that day’s videos.  Once the summit is over you may continue to hear from me from time to time, but you are welcome to unsubscribe at any time.


During each presentation the speakers will share with you how you can opt-in for their freebie.  There will be a button for you to sign up for their email list (or visit their website) so that you only hear from speakers that really resonated with you.  You will not be automatically added to everyone’s email list.

Learn more in our Privacy Policy.

To avoid tech glitches, save my sanity, and keep things easy for the speakers, the presentations are pre-recorded and will be released daily.  I know how busy life can get so all of the presentations for that day will be released first thing in the morning (and you will get an email with all of the links).

New this year – there is a daily live recap/chat for anyone interested in attending.

No, we have a full schedule for this year and are no longer accepting speakers.

All presentations have closed captioning and transcripts available. Detailed notes of each presentation are available when you upgrade to the VIP All Access Pass once you register for the event.

Please reach out if there’s anything we can do to ensure you’re able to enjoy this event.

No problem! Shoot an email over to hello@womencanmoney.com and we’ll get back to you within 2 business days.
