Overall B Impact Scoreinfo_outline


The B Impact Scores are being compared against all businesses that have completed the B Impact Assessment

Mills Office Productivity has taken care of British Columbia’s office supplies needs since 1949. Founder Don Mills set out from his parents’ home at the age of 19 to become the youngest person in Canada to establish a commercial stationery company. The company was Mills Printing Stationery Co. and today, as Mills Office Productivity, it continues to be a visionary family business thriving as one of the largest locally owned office supply providers in British Columbia. Brad and Blair Mills have carried on their father’s legacy of care and determination while executing a vision of commitment to social and environmental responsibility.

Mills' social responsibility management practices are based on the principle that businesses have an important role to play in addressing social interests and sustainable development goals of their community. Mills, located in Vancouver’s Downtown Eastside, embraces its community leadership and gives back by actively engaging with social enterprises (HAVE Café ), unique hiring practices (Fast Track to Employment), and through sponsorships and donations to initiatives, foundations, and charities that aim to instill real and permanent improvements to the lives of disadvantaged community residents.
