The relationship with oneself, and with others, as an essential ingredient of sensual fulfillment
Suzanne Dufresne, entrepreneur and apprentice doula
The owner of Oui is studying to become a doula with Doula Canada and has over eight years of experience providing empathetic customer service.
A unique concept in Canada
Speaking around her about sexuality, Suzanne was able to notice the lack of safe and welcoming places in Montreal. It was while talking to nearly a hundred people as part of an incubation program at Concordia University that she recognized her community's crying need for healthy and invigorating intimate relationships. She now features a holistic selection of products in her store, along with events about sexual health and intimate relationships.
A challenging path for entrepreneurs in the sexual wellness industry
At only 25 years old, she started her own retail business but came up against a lack of understanding on the part of support organizations for SMEs. It was after 16 months of perseverance that Oui opened its doors in the Plateau-Mont-Royal, without any financial support from public organizations.
