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 https://wx.toronto.ca/inter/pmmd/calls.nsf/Vendors?openform
Once register suppliers will receive email alerts when the City post calls related to the product or service they have identified on their registration.
