Tools for Growth Series – Procurement & Technology

January 31, 2018 @ 1:00 pm - 2:00 pm

This event is FREE but you must register. Registered participants are invited to submit questions in advance.

Join WBE Canada as we kick off our 2018 ‘Tools for Growth’ Webinar Series. Our first installment features special guest Hayley Clift, Senior Account Executive at OMX as we highlight Procurement, Technology and examine some of the Federal Programs and Initiatives currently underway.

The Canadian government, at all levels, is developing policies and programming with a focus to increase support for women entrepreneurs. Recently, they have examined how their large purchasing power and inclusive procurement can create opportunities that will broaden the context of their socio-economic objectives.

This webinar offers insights into what’s taking place and will highlight a few of the tools that women business owners can start using right now to gain access to some areas of public procurement such as larger defence, aerospace, infrastructure, energy and mining projects.

On this webinar learn about:

  • Federal government Defence Procurement Strategy (DPS)
  • The Industrial and Technological Benefit (ITB) Policy
  • How ITB will ensure that defence and security procurements are better leveraged to create jobs and economic growth in Canada

How to find and search opportunities within larger public procurement for contracting opportunities in solutions like OMX
