Takwakin Procurement Event

"Empowering Communities, Enriching Futures: Indigenous Procurement Excellence"

After a 2 year hiatus due to the Covid-19 pandemic, the Indigenous Chamber of Commerce is excited to announce the revival of our procurement event.

As an Indigenous business organization, it is part of our mandate to support and advocate for Indigenous businesses, which includes advocating for Indigenous business strategies between non-Indigenous entities and Indigenous firms.

The Takwâkin (fall) procurement event focuses on increased awareness surrounding procurement opportunities between Indigenous businesses and non-Indigenous entities.

What is procurement chamber match?

Procurement chamber match sessions are 15 minute networking/information sessions between organizations that need procurement opportunities filled and businesses that are looking to fill those procurement needs.

Each attendee registered for the procurement chamber match sessions will have the opportunity to meet with 8 organizations over a two hour period.

Businesses will be matched with organizations prior to the event date and will receive their list of matches one week before the event.
