Selling to the Federal Government

Wed March 25 @ 10:00 am - 11:30 am


Due to the current situation pertaining to COVID-19, we have made the decision to cancel this seminar.

Presenter: La Vona Parker, Office of Small and Medium Enterprise

Are you a person with a disability or health condition who owns or runs a business? Have you considered the Government of Canada (GOC) as a potential customer? The GOC purchases over $20 billion of goods and services each year, ranging from catering services to automotive fleets. Unfortunately, persons with disabilities are under-represented among government suppliers. By understanding your potential to sell to the GOC, we can change that – because when everyone is included, we all do better.

Attendee will learn the following:
1. Find out whether the Government of Canada buys your good or service
2. Provide feedback on barriers and challenges you face when trying to do business
3. Watch a live demonstration of how to search for specific opportunities

La Vona Parker works for the Office of Small and Medium Enterprises (OSME) in Public Services and Procurement Canada (PSPC). OSME advocates on behalf of SMEs and encourages their participation in federal government procurement. OSME assists SMEs in better understanding how the government buys goods and services and raises awareness of opportunities to sell to the Government of Canada.

This seminar is available for remote participants via webinar (i.e., from a computer, tablet or smartphone). Please choose “Online” at registration. The day before the event, we will send you a confirmation email with the link to join the seminar online.
