Join our Indigenous Women Entrepreneur’s Speakers Panel along with OSME (Office of Small and Medium Enterprises) and Indigenous Services Canada on November 25th. Hear from women already doing business with the government, and learn how you can seize this opportunity!

Indigenous Services Canada and OSME Guest Speakers Show You How-to Get Started
In addition to our speaker’s panel, guest speakers from Indigenous Services Canada and OSME (Office of Small and Medium Enterprises) will provide a brief overview of how federal procurement works, what the myths are, and how to access this $20 – $25 Billon annual marketplace.
Attendees will learn how the Government of Canada purchases goods and services from Indigenous suppliers, including set-asides, standing offers/supply arrangements, and subcontracting opportunities, and how to make the most of these opportunities. Attendees will also learn how to register and maximize the use of their business listing in the Indigenous Business Directory (IBD).
All attendees of this event will receive a direct link to our follow-up event – a more in-depth how-to workshop scheduled for Tuesday, December 8th, 2020.
