Procurement Assistance Canada (PAC) – Procurement support for businesses

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

Procurement Assistance Canada can help Canadian Businesses to better understand and navigate the procurement process so you can get “bid ready”. Contact us to learn about:
• How the government buys goods and services;
• How to sell to the federal government;

We do that by:
• Working to eliminate systemic barriers that impact smaller and diverse businesses;
• Advocating for smaller and diverse businesses among government buyers and policy-makers;
• Improving tools and processes towards more equitable access to federal contracting opportunities.

Our regional network of offices across Canada offer:
