  • Materials:
  • An Update on Procurement Law in Canada

  • About this program:
  • Governments at all levels throughout Canada, including the federal, provincial and municipal, annually purchase over C$100 billion worth of goods and services. The financial consequence to suppliers is frequently significant, with governments being the biggest purchasing group within the country. Nonetheless the framework of public procurement in Canada is anything but straightforward. Governments have to consider a great deal when they spend public money: they are tangled in a web of trade treaties, legislation and government directives. However, there are some processes from the public sector that are worth considering and adapting for private sector use.


    This session will offer a refresher on procurement law in Canada; an update on recent cases and developments; and practical implications and key issues arising from recent cases. Please join our panelists John Boscariol, Leila Rafi and Brenda Swick, for what is sure to be an interesting session.
