February 1, 2022 – Ottawa – Public Services and Procurement Canada (PSPC) invites Canadian organizations to participate in a Request for Information (RFI) to provide feedback on options for strengthening cyber security in federal contracting.

This RFI is part of a government-wide initiative to gain a better understanding of the cyber security practices of organizations that do business with the Government of Canada and other jurisdictions. Cyber-attacks are on the rise and Canada’s allies such as the United States are establishing requirements for demonstrated cyber security in order to do business with them. Similarly, the Government of Canada is looking at ways to strengthen and support the cyber security of defence and other critical supply chains for Canadian businesses.

The information gathered through the RFI will help inform cyber security requirements, cyber security certification and other approaches to support Canadian organizations in meeting cyber security requirements in contracting. Suppliers in defence, security, space, aerospace, and cybersecurity and other stakeholders (e.g., academia, industry associations) are encouraged to participate in the RFI.
