Our History

Commonwealth Corporation (CommCorp) is a quasi-public agency that was established in 1996 through the merger of two Massachusetts nonprofit organizations: the Industrial Service Program and the Bay State Skills Corporation. The agency was then known as the Corporation for Business, Work and Learning until March 2001, when it began doing business under the name “Commonwealth Corporation” by a resolution of its board of directors. The Legislature formally approved the name change in September 2004.
