This is a Request for Information (RFI). The Government of Canada hereby notifies Industry about an upcoming opportunity and is seeking information from respondents with interest, as part of a consortium or Joint Venture.  The opportunity will be to design, build, fit up, operate, maintain, and dismantle the Canada Pavilion at Expo 2020 Dubai and will also include the same for the public presentation/exhibition components within the Canada Pavilion.  Consideration should also be given to the possible legacy (i.e. future use after the Expo) of the Canada Pavilion.  Responses to this RFI are not, and will not be considered to be, formal bids.

The issuance of this RFI is not a bid solicitation and is not to be considered in any way a commitment by the Government of Canada, nor as authority to Industry to undertake any work that could be charged to Canada. Responses to the RFI will not be formally evaluated. The RFI and any responses thereto do not impose any obligation or constitute any commitment on the part of Canada to issue a Request for Proposal (RFP) related to the Canada Pavilion at the Expo 2020 or to make any award of business to any respondent. 

Public Works and Government Services Canada (PWGSC), on behalf of Global Affairs Canada (GAC), solicits:

a) information and feedback from industry in this matter solely for the benefit of GAC;
b) ideas related to the current approach that might result in efficiencies and cost savings to Canadians.

There will be no short-listing of potential suppliers for the purposes of undertaking any future work as a result of this RFI. Similarly, participation in this RFI is not a condition or prerequisite for the participation in any potential subsequent solicitation.

Responses will be kept confidential, subject to the provisions of the Access to Information Act, and will be retained to support further development of internal planning documents and decisions, and possibly any future RFP. Any findings made public will protect commercially sensitive information in accordance with federal policies.
