About this talk

Local governments and other large purchasers spend billions of dollars each year on goods, services and infrastructure. This purchasing power could enable local employment, skills, business and provide multiple community benefits.

The complexities of social procurement increase in smaller, more remote and coastal communities. The CCSPI envisions that all local, First Nations and Coastal governments will maximize the possibilities of social procurement.
