Ontario Social Procurement System Map
June 28, 2021
Social procurement is the practice of using existing investments in infrastructure and the purchase of goods and services to generate social and economic value, such as the creation of decent work opportunities for jobseekers experiencing employment barriers, and equitable opportunities for diverse suppliers and social enterprises to do business with institutions. This report has been commissioned by the Ontario Social Procurement Partnership (“the Partnership”), a coalition made up of the Ontario Trillium Foundation, the City of Toronto, the Atkinson Foundation, Buy Social Canada, and the Canadian Community Economic Development Network. The collective ambition of these organizations is to develop a vibrant and sustainable social procurement system in Ontario. From the Ontario Social Procurement Partnership.
