Social impact is at our core

We are incorporated as a Community Contribution Company.

This hybrid business model combines the innovation and flexibility of a for-profit business with the social mission and governance of a not-for-profit.

Learn More

We are a certified social enterprise by Buy Social Canada.

This means we embed a social, cultural or environmental purpose into the business, and reinvest the majority of profits into the community.

Learn More

Each year we publish an annual report on our impact and profits.

We do this to maintain our Community Contribution Company and social enterprise status, which require transparency and integrity.
