Social Procurement: Achieving Greater Value through Existing Purchasing

 Buy Social Canada Summit

November 27-28 in Gatineau, QC

Social procurement is a tool to leverage an added social value with existing government and corporate purchasing. It adds a social value consideration to the evaluation of price, quality, and environment of the goods and services you purchase, without added cost.

The Buy Social Canada Summit will investigate the future of social procurement through panel discussions, case studies, and learning exchange sessions on topics including Beyond CSR and Charity, Government Purchasing, and Infrastructure and Community Benefit Agreements.

The Honourable Carla Qualtrough, Minister of Public Services Procurement Canada, will participate in an opening discussion. A unique feature of the Summit is its design to minimize PowerPoints and maximize participant engagement. Everyone will have the opportunity to get involved and share their knowledge and experiences. Purchasers from government and business and representatives of social enterprise suppliers will come together to discover common goals, identify barriers, and seek solutions that will contribute to the future of social procurement.
