We have some exciting news! We are proud to announce that STEM Minds Corp. is officially a Certified B Corporation!
Becoming B Corp certified is a very important accomplishment for us. It demonstrates that we have critical social and environmental commitments as a for-profit business and are working to address the sustainability goals of the world.
As part of our B Corp certification, we are committed to continuing to develop a powerful sustainable business framework so that our community, and especially the youth we work with, can see that businesses can operate in a way that demonstrates that doing the right thing matters more than just profitability.
About B Corps
Certified B Corporations are businesses that meet the highest standards of verified social and environmental performance, public transparency, and legal accountability to balance profit and purpose. B Corps are accelerating a global culture shift to redefine success in business and build a more inclusive and sustainable economy.
Society’s most challenging problems cannot be solved by government and nonprofits alone. The B Corp community works toward reduced inequality, lower levels of poverty, a healthier environment, stronger communities, and the creation of more high quality jobs with dignity and purpose. By harnessing the power of business, B Corps use profits and growth as a means to a greater end: positive impact for their employees, communities, and the environment.
B Corps form a community of leaders and drive a global movement of people using business as a force for good. The values and aspirations of the B Corp community are embedded in the B Corp Declaration of Interdependence.
The B Corp Declaration of Independence
Becoming a certified B Corp means that STEM Minds believes in and commits to adhering the following declaration:
We envision a global economy that uses business as a force for good.
This economy is comprised of a new type of corporation – the B Corporation –
Which is purpose-driven and creates benefit for all stakeholders, not just shareholders.
As B Corporations and leaders of this emerging economy, we believe:
- That we must be the change we seek in the world.
- That all business ought to be conducted as if people and place mattered.
- That, through their products, practices, and profits, businesses should aspire to do no harm and benefit all.
- To do so requires that we act with the understanding that we are each dependent upon another and thus responsible for each other and future generations.
Thank you to all our supporters for helping us achieve this milestone; especially our youth who inspire us to do our best each and every day!

Congratulations on becoming B Corp Certified! I work at Ozery Bakery (Vaughan, ON) and we earned our certification in July. I learned about your company in the latest B Corp e-newsletter and I was wondering if you’d like to connect to discuss supporting children and children’s education. We do a lot to mentor children and students in Canada and our companies’ goals and values seem very similar. It’d be wonderful to hear from you! And again, congratulations on obtaining your certification! Please email me if you’re at all interested in connecting and/or exploring the possibility of forming a partnership sometime in the future.
