Building a more inclusive and diverse network of businesses will strengthen Canada’s economic resilience. On April 4-5, the federal Office of the Procurement Ombudsman hosts a virtual summit to raise awareness of the public and private sector programs that can help small businesses and businesses led by Indigenous Peoples, Black and racialized Canadians, women, Two-Spirit, lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, queer, intersex, and additional sexually and gender diverse people (2SLGBTQI+) Canadians, persons with disabilities and other underrepresented groups access federal contracting opportunities.
Former Gov. Gen Adrienne Clarkson is the keynote speaker. Now in its fifth year, the summit teaches the practical skills needed to win federal contracts. It’s also a chance to build connections with people in government who can help your business. The two-day summit runs from 8 am to 1:30 pm, April 4-5.
