What if we told you that you ‘vote’ everyday for what you want in your community through the purchases you make? If there was an opportunity to vote for businesses that are helping to build the community you live in, would you?
Society’s most challenging problems cannot be solved by government and nonprofits alone, so what are you doing to make an impact? Actions speak louder than words, and B Corps are creating a global movement with collective impact. Be a part of the movement and the solution at a local level! Are you in?
The idea of using ‘business as a force for good’ is the founding principle of a Beneficial Corporation or “B Corp”. Sandbox Centre is on a mission to make our region the B Corp focal point of Canada. We know you care, and now there is a way to show the nation just how much.

Why would anyone want to become a B Corp? Quite simple really.. B Corps grow healthy communities. They are better positioned to attract and retain top talent. By doing business with other B Corps, they strengthen local supply chains. More and more, consumers are voting with their pocket books, actively looking to support companies who have committed to giving back.
