Ontario Aboriginal Procurement Pilot

Ontario’s Aboriginal procurement pilot is intended to increase Aboriginal business participation in government procurement and support Aboriginal economic development. It can stimulate and diversify Aboriginal business and economic development, and promote partnership opportunities between Aboriginal and non‐Aboriginal businesses.

As of March 2012, for a period of two years, Ministries may consider Aboriginal procurement preferences when the goods/services are being procured:
 
·         Impact or benefit Aboriginal people or communities significantly;
·         Are culturally specific to Aboriginal people;and/or
·         Are primarily designated for Aboriginal people (i.e., procurements that involve a program or policy for Aboriginal people).
 

For more information on the procurement pilot please download the attached pilot project information/fact sheet.
