Every purchase has a social, economic, and environmental impact. Through social procurement, the City of Peterborough can leverage existing procurement activities to achieve positive social value outcomes and contribute to Peterborough’s strategic goals, including to be “A complete community that provides a high quality of life for its residents within a highly valued natural environment.”

City of Peterborough, with support from Buy Social Canada, is developing a social procurement policy that will advance the use of existing procurement to contribute to Peterborough community goals and strategies. Further to the policy position, the City of Peterborough will initiate a three-year social procurement implementation strategy.

You are invited to join an engagement session to learn about social procurement and to provide input on how the policy and implementation strategy can be shaped.

All are welcome. If you choose to join us, we ask that you:

  • Download the latest version of Zoom
  • Arrive a few minutes early
  • Come ready to connect with other interested community members
