Register as a supplier for the Government of Canada

The Government of Canada is committed to creating opportunities for Indigenous businesses to succeed and grow.

Did you know that you need to be registered in SAP Ariba and the Indigenous Business Directory (IBD) to be awarded federal contracts set aside for Indigenous businesses?
By registering in both systems, you make your company’s name and supply capabilities widely known to federal departments and agencies, who may use these systems to identify sources of supply for the goods and services they buy.

Procurement Assistance Canada (PAC) and Indigenous Services Canada (ISC) would like to invite Indigenous businesses to a workshop to register in SAP Ariba and IBD.
