Join the conversation on how the City of Peterborough can use social procurement to leverage its existing purchasing activities to contribute to the success of the community’s economic, environmental and social goals.

Social procurement can help shape an inclusive, vibrant, and healthy community. Social procurement can create new revenue streams for local businesses and social enterprises, leverage local know-how and assets, and facilitate new ways of working together for community benefit.

The City and Buy Social Canada, a social enterprise that has been contracted to consult on the possibilities for social procurement in Peterborough, are hosting two information and public engagement sessions with attendance online or by phone:
