Buy Social Vancouver Island (2018-present)

Scale Collaborative is partnering with Buy Social Canada to raise awareness of social procurement, support planning and implementation, and to build capacity within social enterprises to bid and succeed at social procurement opportunities.

Buy Social Vancouver Island and Rural BC brings socially driven purchasers and social enterprise suppliers together, building business relationships that generate social benefits to communities across the country. We offer a recognized, Canada-wide social enterprise certification program that opens the door to an emerging social impact network. We work with community, private sector, and government to support the development of policy and resources to strengthen local and regional social procurement initiatives.
