2023 Cando Survey on
Indigenous Procurement and Capacity Needs

Dear friend,

On August 6, 2021, the Government of Canada implemented a mandatory requirement for federal departments and agencies to ensure a minimum of 5 % of the total value of contracts are to be held by Indigenous businesses by 2024. This is a significant opportunity for our members. We want to help our members take advantage of these new opportunities now. The challenge is we don’t know enough about our members’ experiences to adequately support them. We need your help and hope that you will agree to participate in our 2023 Cando Survey on Indigenous Procurement and Capacity Needs.

The survey begins with an informed consent preamble. If you consent, the survey will begin. The answers to this survey will help us serve you better. 

As a token of our appreciation, respondents will receive a summary of results and be entered in a draw to win one of ten $100 Visa gift cards as well as our grand prize of a free 2023 Cando membership and complimentary registration to the 29th Annual Conference on June 26-29, 2023 to be held in Membertou First Nation, Nova Scotia.

Thanking you in advance for participating in this very important survey. Together we can help transform and build Indigenous participation in procurement.
