Benajmin LeBlanc & Company was operated by Benjamin LeBlanc, of Plymouth, Yarmouth County, N.S., who was a shipbuilder, ship owner and merchant.

Jean Mandé LeBlanc died in 1887, and Benjamin assumed full responsibility for the family business. Benjamin also owned shares in several schooners. He died in 1944.
