Social Impact for Canadian Communities

We are a Social Enterprise that invests in healthcare initiatives that benefit Canadian communities, providing reliable services that move them toward sustainable health.

Accerta is proud to be a certified B Corp social enterprise. What does that mean?

A B Corporation (B Corp) certification indicates that Accerta meets the social sustainability and environmental performance standards established by the nonprofit organization B-Lab

A social enterprise is a business that strives to improve human and environmental wellbeing in the communities in which it operates, while providing its clients with the efficient services and a high return-on-investment they require. 

Accerta’s B Corp certification provides our clients, their stakeholders and families, and low-income families and individuals in their communities with several advantages.

Our B Corp Journey

What Is A B Corp?

The B Corp Certification is a mark of trust: a promise that a company is doing business in a way that meets rigorous standards of social and environmental performance, transparency and accountability. B Corps use business as a force for good. To become a B Corp, you have to become certified by B Lab, a third-party non-profit.

The global B Corp community consists of 2,400 B Corps, across 50 countries and 140 industries.

Why Did We Become One?

We believe that using business as a force for good is unquestionably the future of business.
Citizens are rightly holding organizations accountable - they need us to make a difference, drive
longer-term impact, and make the world a better place.

We’re proud to be a B Corp. It means we hold ourselves to the highest social and environmental
standards when it comes to our employees, our government and healthcare partners, and the
communities in which we work.

As a B Corp, we commit to being transparent and accountable in everything we do.

What Do We Want To Achieve?

As a B Corp, we strive to provide Canadian communities with the reliable services they need to
improve access to healthcare, advance social standards, and build sustainable and progressive
programs that benefit the environment and society at large

We will endeavour to commit to the B Corp community in the longer-term, each time improving
our certification score and reflecting progress we’re making in these crucial areas.

What Does This Mean For Employees?

Our B Corp certification helps hold us accountable to our employees: providing competitive
benefits, fair wages, a diverse workforce and opportunities for growth.

We’re proud of the unique, engaging, caring and compassionate culture we’re creating at
Accerta. We place a lot of importance around the meaningful work we do through community
engagement.
