The City of Winnipeg would like to invite you to join the new Winnipeg Social Procurement Roundtable. The first meeting will be a 1.5-hour virtual interactive meeting on Thursday February 8, 2024, from 10:00am-11:30am.

This Social Procurement Roundtable is for you if you are:
- A public-sector purchaser interested in learning about social procurement and meeting suppliers;
- A City contractor who wants to be able to compete successfully on the City’s social procurement evaluations by incorporating social value into your supply chain; or
- A social enterprise, Indigenous business or diverse business looking for purchasers who value the social value your business creates!
The Winnipeg Social Procurement Roundtable is an interactive event that will provide an opportunity for purchasers from across Winnipeg to connect with social enterprises, Indigenous businesses and diverse businesses and incorporate them into their supply chain. The purchasers will include City purchasers, public sector purchasers and private sector purchasers. Businesses who sell to the City will have the opportunity to connect with social value suppliers and incorporate social value suppliers into their supply chain in response to the City’s goals for sustainable procurement.
Join co-chairs Rhonda Forgues from the Indigenous Chamber of Commerce and Michael Barkman from CCEDNet Manitoba for the first meeting where we will:
- Learn more about the Sustainable Procurement Action Plan from the City’s Sustainable Procurement Liaison, Corinne Evason;
- Connect with other social value suppliers and purchasers through small group activities; and
- Stay up to date on what’s happening in the Winnipeg business community.
To support connecting purchasers and social value suppliers, this event will include breakout activities and group discussions. We ask that you arrive a few minutes early, be prepared to explore new possibilities together and bring your questions.
