Marketplace Impact: A National Conversation on Social Procurement

May 25, 2023 @ 10:00 am 12:00 pm PDT

Join Buy Social Canada as we share stories, updates, and progress of social procurement at Marketplace Impact: A National Conversation on Social Procurement. This is part one of a two-part series exploring what’s happening on the supply and demand sides of the Canadian social value marketplace.

No longer isolated policies or one-off pilots, social procurement has evolved into a movement that is influencing the behaviour of the marketplace. Governments, institutions, corporations, and non-profits continue to move procurement from merely a series of economic transactions to a tool for building healthy, thriving communities.

This will be a free, engaging event to learn about new social procurement research and trends. The event will feature panel discussions and opportunities for conversation and networking with peers on our virtual platform Airmeet.
