Procurement Assistance Canada, as part of Public Services and Procurement Canada (PSPC), is here to make it easier for smaller businesses to bid on federal contracting opportunities.

Your speakers:

Stephanie Waters
Supply Officer
Public Services and Procurement Canada
Stephanie joined Procurement Assistance Canada in January of 2021. Since then, she has strived to connect with a wide demographic of suppliers and organizations in order to assist them in becoming a supplier of the Federal Government. To best achieve this, Stephanie delivers educational seminars and conducts one-on-one meetings with small business owners. She is local to the Interior of BC and graduated from Thompson Rivers University with a Bachelor’s of Business Administration, majoring in Supply Chain Management. Stephanie hopes that through this meaningful work at PAC, we will be able to reduce barriers in federal procurement and see increased participation by currently underrepresented communities.

Stephanie is also a Certified Agile Leader with the Scrum Alliance and Social Procurement Certification from Buy Social Canada.
