Join the Buy Social Canada Symposium on October 18, 2022 to connect with leading social purchasers and suppliers, learn from industry experts, and celebrate trailblazers at the Social Procurement Champion Awards.

This year the Symposium theme is Broad New Horizons. Now, more than ever, social procurement is growing in popularity and application across Canada. We will explore diverse approaches to incorporating social value in purchasing, the key role community collaboration plays for success, clear best practices for implementation, and the next frontier: a strong reporting and storytelling practice to showcase outcomes.

We will be using an interactive virtual format so not only will you be inspired by the speakers, but you will have the opportunity to share and learn from each other. Session recordings will be available for ticket holders following the event.
