Transforming Indigenous Participation in Procurement


Since 2021, the Government of Canada and Indigenous Services Canada has taken a series of steps to increase Indigenous participation in procurement.  It is critical that EDOs and community leaders can participate in this transformation.  This session is intended to provide participants an opportunity to talk with ISC subject matter experts about barriers and concerns faced by Indigenous communities and businesses that want to participate in federal procurement.
