Watch the Replay of our Latest Webinar - Introduction to Procurement for the Construction Sector

Each year, governments and public agencies of all types, combined, spend hundreds of billions of dollars on construction. With all this investment in construction, there is a drive to leverage these investments to create social impact within a local economy and community through the existing purchasing channels of construction services.

As with many regions, societal issues such as poverty reduction, labour availability, housing and social marginalization are driving public agencies to find more creative and innovative ways to address these needs.

Presented by Rory Kulmala, CEO of the Vancouver Island Construction Association.
