Indigenous Procurement Policy Dialogue

In collaboration with Fisheries and Oceans Canada and the Canadian Coast Guard, the Institute will convene a virtual ‘workshop’ on Indigenous procurement opportunities and challenges in the DFO–CCG portfolio.

The workshop will be held over a series of sessions to target specific topics related to procurement and to include different expert panelists, officials and Indigenous business managers and entrepreneurs.

As a result of the workshop, we expect to understand:

  • the current state of DFO–CCG procurement of Indigenous-owned and -operated businesses
  • current and future Indigenous procurement opportunities at DFO–CCG
  • Indigenous capacity, expertise and gaps with regards to the procurement process and successful delivery of contracts
  • administrative and/or policy constraints and opportunities based on lessons learned and best-case examples

Current Federal Procurement Opportunities: Portal

To connect current DFO–CCG (and other relevant federal department/agency) procurement opportunities with Indigenous businesses and groups right now, we have collected (and will continue to update) the following requests for proposals issued on the federal buyandsell.gc.ca procurement portal. There may be other federal procurement opportunities of interest, so be sure to visit buyandsell.gc.ca on a regular basis.
