Here at GSC, we don’t like to brag – instead, we like to think of it as letting you in on a little secret, which is why we’re thrilled to share that GSC has recently joined the ranks of Certified Social Enterprises at Buy Social Canada.
Buy Social Canada is spearheading the social procurement movement here in Canada, with the goal of bringing together purpose-driven purchasers and social value suppliers to generate social benefits for communities across the country. The Social Enterprise Certification process recognizes organizations that embed a social, cultural or environmental purpose into the business, and reinvest the majority of profits into their social mission.
As Canada’s only national non-profit health benefits provider, we’re very proud to be included in this group. Our purpose is to make it easier for people to live their healthiest lives, and this mission has been embedded in our DNA since GSC was founded over 60 years ago. This certification represents the next evolution in our journey as a leading social enterprise – find us in Buy Social Canada’s directory of Certified Social Enterprises.
