Public Procurement Lunch and Learns

Register Now for Public Procurement Webinar on November 10th.

Circular Innovation Council has partnered with Procurement Assistance Canada Ontario
Region (PAC-OR), a Public Services and Procurement Canada division, to bring awareness to the power of public procurement and shed light on the federal procurement system for small and medium enterprises (SMEs).
Small to medium-sized enterprises are at the core of a thriving and resilient circular economy yet often find it challenging to compete in the marketplace and navigate the federal procurement system.
As such, we are delighted to extend an opportunity to our members and interested stakeholders to engage directly with PAC-OR during our lunch and learn on November 10, 2022, from 12:00 p.m. to 1:00 p.m.
