Canada’s LGBT+ Chamber of Commerce invites you to a professional development session with the Office of Small and Medium Sized enterprises – Mythbusting Federal Government Procurement.

Did you know that the Government of Canada buys billions worth of goods and services each year? Do you think they only buy from big companies? Would you be surprised to learn that many of these contracts are awarded to small businesses in Canada?

Let us help you decide if selling to the Government of Canada is appropriate for you.

Join us to dispel some myths about selling to government and find out:

  • What the government buys
  • Who the government buys from
  • How the government buys
  • Where to find resources and free support for small businesses

About the Speaker:

Anton Moses works in Quebec region with the Office of Small and Medium Enterprises. With OSME, Anton engages with the supplier community to help them to better understand how the federal government buys goods and services in an effort to make it easier for smaller businesses to bid on federal contracting opportunities.
