Tabatha Bull has been named one of Canada’s top 100 Most Powerful Women.

The Top 100 list is an initiative of the Women’s Executive Network (WXN). It annually recognizes women across Canada who “make a transformational difference in their fields and actively shape a more inclusive future, especially in underrepresented areas.”

Bull is a member of the Nipissing First Nation, whose territory borders North Bay, and the president and CEO of the Canadian Council for Aboriginal Business (CCAB), a role she’s held since 2018.

She’s being celebrated by WXN in the Canadian Tire Community Impact category.

“As CCAB’s CEO, she is committed to help rebuild and strengthen the path towards reconciliation and a prosperous Indigenous economy to benefit all Canadians,” according to WXN. “An electrical engineer, Tabatha works for Indigenous inclusion and diversity in Canada’s energy sector.”

Additionally, Bull sits on a number of committees and advisory boards, including Catalyst CEO, which helps build workplaces that work for women; the Queen’s University Dean of Engineering’s Circle of Advisors; and CN’s inaugural Indigenous Advisory Council.

Bull has also appeared as a judge on Bears’ Lair, a pitch-style entrepreneurship TV show, which is dedicated to the growth of Indigenous entrepreneurs.

In 2022, Bull received the CEO of the Year Award from the Ontario Chamber of Commerce, which is given for extraordinary leadership.

Members of this year’s Top 100 list will be celebrated during a gala event on November 20 at the Fairmont Royal York Toronto.
