What is social enterprise?
A social enterprise is a company that generates a significant proportion of its revenues from the sale of goods or services, while integrating social, cultural or environmental objectives into its activities. Crucially, it reinvests 51% or more of its profits in its social, cultural or environmental mission. This model emphasizes mission over profit, representing a powerful response to contemporary economic and social challenges.
Why is certification important?
Buy Social Canada’s social enterprise certification doesn’t simply assess an organization’s “quality”, but rather its structure, which prioritizes the reinvestment of profits in its social mission rather than in shareholder wealth. The aim is to recognize and support these businesses, considered essential for transforming the market and maximizing community capital.
