Social Enterprises

Buy Social Canada is a grassroots movement with the mission to connect socially
conscious suppliers with socially minded buyers. The program involves the completion
of a “social audit” to assure member businesses meet the necessary, internationally
recognized, requirements to be identified as a legitimate social enterprise.

Being Buy Social Certified has opened our organization to a network of like-minded businesses where we have the opportunity to learn, grow and collaborate with one another. Receiving certification has strengthened our customer base and created a vessel in which the word of our impactful work can be spread. We are a proud member of Buy Social Canada, for more information please visit
