Chandos Construction is a 100 per cent employee owned, 40-year-old construction firm operating in cities across Canada. It is also a Certified B Corporation and a leader in social hiring and social procurement. Tim Coldwell is president of the company. His story is a compelling one. He is Mohawk and self-identifies as having been a youth at risk.
In this episode of Buy Social Canada’s Social Value Marketplace podcast Tim shares his story of having found a new family in Chandos construction. From there we explore how this remarkable company practices social hiring and social procurement as a matter of course and intention. We discuss how social enterprises, firms like Chandos, municipalities, and the federal government are shaping a Social Value Marketplace that could take root as we look through and beyond COVID-19.
