are a force
We are Manitoba companies that meet the highest verified standards of social and environmental performance, transparency, and accountability. We use the power of business to create positive impacts for our employees, communities, local economy, and our environment.
We have the good fortune of living in a province with a history of progressive social action, grassroots organizing, Indigenous leadership, and support for labour movements and environmental activism. There are also hundreds of thoughtful and progressive businesses, conscious companies, and not-only-for-profits in the province. Our theory of change is that many of these companies are potential B Corporations or may be interested in aligning with the B Corp movement. The ground for B Local Manitoba is fertile.
