How does Certification Work?
Buy Social Canada’s third-party certification program recognizes your organization as a verified social enterprise, and enhances your marketing potential as a business that actively prioritizes community benefits and social impact over private profit and shareholder returns.
There are two streams of certification, representing both sides of the procurement equation.
If your social enterprise sells goods and services in the marketplace, and meets our guidelines, you can become a Buy Social certified supplier. Gain access to our network of consultants, fellow businesspeople, and educational events, to help grow your social enterprise!
Businesses which have committed to making social purchasing a core part of their supply structure can become Buy Social Certified Purchasers. No matter their model, every business can create policies supporting local impact and social purchasing.
By achieving certification, your business will become part of a national network working toward improving economic diversity for every Canadian.
