Website service advisory

In support of PSAB, client departments may designate that a proportion of subcontracts through open procurement be reserved for Aboriginal business, or that non-Aboriginal suppliers are to be encouraged through the use of incentives - e.g., additional evaluation points to hire Aboriginal businesses as subcontractors. The inclusion of Aboriginal businesses as subcontractors must be clearly identified in the solicitation as an evaluation criterion. This is permitted by all of Canada’s free trade agreements.
