Toronto, Ontario - Government procurement in Canada is an annual $200+ Billion dollar marketplace. Public Services and Procurement Canada's (PSPC), Procurement Assistance Canada (PAC) Ontario Region office in partnership with its other government and non-government stakeholders are hosting the 19th Government to Business (G2B) Information Fair and Workshop event. While procurement is one main component there will be others that cater to small business support, development and growth. The event theme or focus for some components will be on businesses owned or led by women, however, all businesses are invited to attend, get informed, learn about what is available through these organizations to help support you. Join us, virtually, to meet with officials in their café rooms at the start of Day 1, attend panel and discussion sessions to learn how to get more involved in making them your customer, connecting with them for support and to get some practical advice from women organization leaders.
