BIPOC Business and Professional Network (BIPOC BPN) is a volunteer-led, volunteer-run, and volunteer-powered not-for-profit that exists to meet the economic needs of all BIPOC (Black, Indigenous, and other People of Colour) in PEI, regardless of where they come from or how long their families have been in Canada.



Our vision is a future where BIPOC communities are fully integrated in PEI, both economically and socially. By this, we mean there are no differences between BIPOC and non-BIPOC in terms of social and economic outcomes.


Our mission is to support BIPOC business owners, professionals, and post-secondary students and trainees to achieve economic empowerment and equity. Whatever the economic goal–starting a business, growing a business, finding meaningful work, career advancement, or upgrading education or skills–we want to be a partner in achieving it.


The values that guide our work are:


We work together to share resources and expertise.


We come together as one BIPOC community and allies while appreciating and respecting our diversity.


We are committed to high quality, standards, competence, and reliability; we conduct ourselves with integrity; and we show respect.


We are accountable, honest, and fair in all our dealings.


We welcome all BIPOC in PEI and allies to bring their whole selves, embrace diversity, and address inaccessibility and inequity.
