Diversifying the Federal Supply Chain Summit

The "Diversifying the Federal Supply Chain Summit" is being organized by the Office of the Procurement Ombudsman (OPO) to increase the diversity of bidders on federal government contracts.

Now in its fifth year, this virtual Summit is designed 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.

Spanning 2 days, the Summit will:

  • Connect you with representatives from the Government of Canada, supplier council programs, and others who can help your businesses
  • Provide you with practical skills needed to win federal government contracts

April 4-5, 2023.

Free via Zoom (with other options to join). Simultaneous and sign language interpretation, as well as closed-captioning will be available.
