Canadian B Local Chapters

B Locals are place-based communities of people using business as a force for good.

At the core of every B Local are Certified B Corporations, for-profit companies that use the power of business to create a shared and durable prosperity for all. Led by passionate volunteers, B Locals exist to create connections, increase the positive impact of their B Corp community, and raise awareness of the B Economy.

How are B Locals
Different from B Lab?

With feedback and insight from the B Corp community, B Lab – a non-profit organisation headquartered in Pennsylvania – sets the vision for the B Corp movement and the strategy to achieve that vision.

B Lab also confers the certification that allows companies to call themselves “Certified B Corporations.”

B Local communities are independently run organisations or committees – most commonly led by volunteer boards that work in closely with the B Lab team. These B Local Leaders serve as shepherds of their local B Corp communities – often organising events, leading awareness initiatives, building partnerships, and providing learning opportunities for companies and people in their region.
