Business Done Differently - Case Studies


Libra Knowledge and Information Services Co-op Inc, a worker co-operative, operates TorontotheBetter, an online social enterprise that includes listings of ‘businesses dedicated to maintaining and building a progressive Toronto that is an inclusive, just and creative community’


"The Toronto the Better directory helps Toronto visitors and citizens find businesses where they can make a social contribution when shop.

Our motto is: I come, I share, I grow.

Why TorontotheBetter.net?

Great cities are places of rich diversity where people grow by connecting and exchanging with the new while rooted in community.

A better Toronto means a healthy city for all who live, work and visit here. As many traditional sources of support withdraw, more than ever, Toronto needs to foster the commitment and energy of all those committed to a progressive city.

Innovative businesses that support the health of their community, workers, the environment and their customers contribute to the growth and development of a city still admired for openness, civility, justice and creativity.

Informed shopping decisions, putting your money where your values are, is a way all people can take economic action to make the city, and the world, a better place."
