Federal procurement is moving online. During this transition, you may be able to bid on some tender opportunities through CanadaBuys. Some opportunities will continue to require bid submission through other methods such as a bid receiving unit or through Canada Post Connect. Each procurement opportunity will clearly detail the delivery method to submit a bid.

There are two types of registration for suppliers:

Find opportunities to sell goods and services to the GC

Browse and search Government of Canada tenders: Search for bid opportunities from federal departments and agencies. Use the search filters to browse by date, location and Goods and Services Identification Number (GSIN).

The tenders search will move to CanadaBuys in Fall 2022. Right now, you can preview the tenders search on CanadaBuys.

  • Searching on CanadaBuys will be similar to searching on Buyandsell.gc.ca. You will be able to search by keywords, and use filters to narrow down the results.
  • If you are subscribed for notifications on Buyandsell.gc.ca, you will need to re-create your subscriptions on CanadaBuys as these subscriptions will not be transferred over.

Get ready for CanadaBuys

CanadaBuys will gradually replace Buyandsell.gc.ca. During the transition, instructions on both sites will inform you about the status of transition, and guide you to the right location for the information you need.

To find out more about how you can prepare your business for the transition, view the Checklist for the transition to electronic procurement.
