Access to market


Whether you realize it or not, every dollar you spend has an economic, environmental and social impact. Making a conscious decision to use that purchasing power to have a positive effect on both the local economy and the vibrancy of the community is what social procurement is all about.

Our partner, Buy Social Canada (BSC), brings together purchasers that see the value of social impact and social enterprises who create social value, to make sure those opportunities can be realized.

Whether you are a business seeking to create, expand or market your social purchasing practices or a social enterprise looking to find new market opportunities, we can get you the support you need.
