Canadian federal Government Procurement Modernization: Insights & Guidance!

Alliance members and supporters can now access federal procurement documentation and guidance relating to Canadian federal government procurement modernization.

Being mindful of the complexity of federal procurement, we are asking members/supporters to offer their guidance on ways to leverage procurement to support buying from Indigenous owned businesses, women owned businesses, small and medium enterprises (SMEs), innovators, firms that have green/ environmentally friendly products, among other marketplace sectors.

This advocacy and briefing material will be of direct interest to executives selling to the federal government.

Key Guidance Documents

A set of six briefing documents are now available, including:

  • Modernizing Indigenous Procurement
