Supplier Diversity Alliance Canada (SDAC)

The Supplier Diversity Alliance Canada (SDAC) was established in 2016 with the intention of advancing supplier diversity in Canada. The SDAC is composed of four national supplier diversity councils that specialize in certifying diverse suppliers – Women Business Enterprises Canada Council (WBE Canada), Canadian Aboriginal, Minority Council Canada (CAMSC), Canadian LGBT+ Chamber of Commerce (CGLCC) and Inclusive Workplace and Supply Chain Canada (IWSCC).

Collaborating and aligning efforts in key areas, the SDAC strives to improve economic opportunities for diverse certified suppliers from across the country, while assisting the various stakeholders in achieving their collective mandates. SDAC focuses on three core activities: Advocacy, Research, and Learning. The SDAC supports and informs governments, businesses and key stakeholders on the importance of inclusive procurement policies and practices through supplier diversity, leading to value with economic growth and social impact.
