95% of Fortune 500 companies have some form of supplier diversity program. Yet less than 1% of supplier diversity programs include Black-owned businesses. Our Black Business Certification program bridges that gap by connecting corporate and public procurement with Black entrepreneurs and businesses.
As a quality third-party certifier of businesses owned, managed, and controlled by Black enterprises, we connect Black businesses to corporate supply chains—helping build relationships, transfer knowledge and drive economic growth for your business.
You are eligible for the Black Business Certification Program if you are:
Our Black Business Certification is a first of its kind in Canada, follows global supplier diversity standards, and is built on the women’s Business Enterprise Canada (WBE) model – which is recognized by many of the biggest businesses nationally and internationally, including IBM, General Motors, Toyota, Accenture, BMO, TD Bank, RBC, TELUS, Roges, Bells and others.
Beyond corporations, BEBC’s Black Business Certification also opens doors to government organizations: federal (like BDC, Procurement Canada), provincial, municipal and more.
By choosing our Black Business Certification, your Black-owned businesses will receive more access to corporate and public procurement processes, gaining a stamp of approval valid for local, national and global supplier diversity programs.
