Canada is seeking letters of interest (LOI) from interested suppliers, having the capacity and availability to provide the services, for the supply and installation of temporary housing units for the accommodation of persons on behalf of the Canada Border Services Agency (CBSA) in St-Bernard-de-Lacolle. 

The purpose of this posting is to list suppliers who would be interested in obtaining a copy of future bid solicitations for the type of goods or services identified in the requirements described below. 

Canada may, in its sole discretion, decide to communicate or solicit bids only from suppliers who have responded to this LOI.

Suppliers may provide suggestions and comments in connection with the required below.
