Federal Government and Indigenous Businesses Event

The federal government is one of the largest buyers of goods and services in Canada. Join Listuguj Mi’gmaq Government, Procurement Assistance Canada and Indigenous Services Canada for this free session to learn about how you can tap into this huge potential market and contribute to the future of policy during this engagement session.
Part one : Animated by Alexandra-Gaëtane Delva, Outreach officer from Procurement Assistance Canada. Learn about registering as a supplier, finding and bidding on opportunities, and federal procurement initiatives for Indigenous businesses such as the Indigenous Business Directory and the minimum target of at least 5% of the total value of federal contracts being awarded to Indigenous businesses.
Part two : Animated by Ryan Peach, Economic Policy Researcher, Transformative Indigenous Procurement Strategy. Anything goes! Come share your stories, experiences and requirements, as a business, economic development officer or community leader, when it comes to selling to the Government of Canada. Let’s think together on how to incorporate Indigenous methodologies, greater Indigenous control, how to transfer services and what co-development of policies and procedures could look like moving forward.
