Federal Marine Procurement Outlook – PSPC


With the newly implemented mandate on Indigenous participation in all government contracts, we are offering seminars on the topic on Wednesday, May 18th. Subject Matter Experts (SMEs) from the PSPC Centre of Excellence on Indigenous Procurement and Indigenous Services Canada (ISC) will present on the mandate and lead a dialogue with industry members on opportunities and challenges as well as lessons learned. 

The one-hour sessions will be offered four times on May 18th (09:00, 10:30, 13:00, 14:30) and are limited to a capacity of 40 participants per session. Following these seminars will be 20-minute one-on-one meetings with our SMEs on Thursday, May 19th, which participants will be able to sign up for during the seminars on May 18th. During these meetings, companies will have the opportunity to ask more specific questions around this topic. Please note that these events will be in-person only.
