ABOUT PUBLIC MARKETS

Each year in Canada, the federal, provincial, and municipal governments allocate $120 billion for the purchase of products and services intended for government operations, at all levels.
The federal government’s extremely varied range of goods and services, as well as its considerable purchase volume, offer numerous business opportunities for suppliers in such areas as:

  • Providing services to citizens
  • The construction of public buildings and infrastructures
  • The purchase of new equipment

Being approved as a supplier for government stakeholders comes with several advantages:

  • The clients are all solvent
  • It’s an acknowledgement of the quality of your company’s products or services
  • Various agencies ensure that the procurement process remains transparent, ethical, and impartial

There is recourse for the settlement of any possible disputes

Meet stakeholders from federal departments and agencies seeking to find suppliers.
