The Government of Canada is one of the largest public buyers of goods and services in Canada, and it is committed to pursuing economic empowerment for equity deserving groups such as women-owned or led businesses.
As a member of NLOWE, do you operate in the professional services sector? Are you looking to secure new clients and grow your business? If you answered yes to these two questions, then this workshop will show you how to:
- find out what professional services the government buys and search tenders to find opportunities,
- register as a supplier and get pre-qualified to sell,
- locate and connect with federal government buyers for low dollar value contracts,
- promote your business to departments and agencies in the Atlantic region; and more!
