1st Benefit Company in Canada!

by | Aug 18, 2020

Light Trail Consulting just reincorporated as a Benefit Company! 

With recent legislation in BC, we’re the 1st in Canada to undertake this legal process and commit our organization to conducting business in a responsible and sustainable way, aligning with our values as a B Corp.

As a Certified B Corp since 2015, incorporating as a Benefit Company, embeds those values and purpose within the legal framework.

 “With tens of thousands of companies using the B Corp Impact Assessment (BIA) to improve their business practices and thousands more using Benefit Corporation governance separately, these two innovations are better when combined. Without the legal foundation, B Corp best practices may drift or be less sustainable, and without the bite of accountability and transparency of the B Corp certification process, Benefit Company governance is much less effective.” reflected Chris Marquis, Samuel C. Johnson Professor in Sustainable Global Enterprise at Cornell University and author of the upcoming book Better Business: How the B Corp Movement Is Remaking Capitalism.

In July Light Trail completed the process through a change in our articles of incorporation and commitments to accountability and reporting transparency. Additionally, as a Certified B Corp we already have 3rd party assessment by B Lab, the non-profit that serves a global movement of people using business as a force for good.

Light Trail was born from a passion to challenge the primary thinking that there has to be a choice between profit and purpose. Now we work with socially minded leaders to help them realize the full potential of an inclusive, purpose driven organization.

If you are looking to rediscover your purpose in everything you do, undertake transformational change for a brighter future, or cope with the many impacts and roadblocks brought forward over the last few months; we can help. Light Trail offers strategic advice, additional support and senior expertise centred on values. We bring visionary thinking and pragmatic application to help build capability in your people to ensure your success.
