About the City of Toronto

The City’s Social Procurement Program aims to create jobs and drive economic growth in Toronto by:

  • Increasing the diversity of companies the City does business with by providing businesses owned by diverse suppliers and non-profit companies with equal opportunity to compete for City contracts
  • Encouraging companies already doing business with the City to work with diverse suppliers and suppliers who provide community benefits
  • Increasing the number of employment, apprenticeship and training opportunities for those living in poverty, newcomers and youth

For procurements between $3,000 to $100,000, Divisions are required to contact at least one certified diverse supplier for a quote as part of the three invitations.  A list of certified diverse supplier is located in the Purchasing & Materials Management  Division intranet page for City staff to visit and select the diverse supplier they are inviting to quote.

For procurement above $100,000 we invite supplier to register at the City’s Vendor Registration System located at

Once register suppliers will receive email alerts when the City post calls related to the product or service they have identified on their registration.
