Founded in 1912, the Better Business Bureau (BBB) is a private corporation consisting of nearly 120 organizations across Canada and the United States. The purpose of the Bureau is to foster a marketplace based on honesty, transparency, and integrity, setting the standard for a community of ethical and trustworthy businesses. Only businesses that meet the Bureau’s high standards are invited to become members.
Once an application is received, the business is extensively reviewed by the local or regional BBB before it is accepted into the organization. Member businesses pay dues and in return are allowed to display the Better Business Bureau logo. Businesses must continue to maintain the standards of the BBB and must agree to resolution of disputes. Members are regularly monitored for adherence to the organization’s strict requirements.
