Procurement Mentorship for EDOs

Exciting news: Procurement Assistance Canada (PAC), in partnership with Cando, is renewing their mentoring / coaching program that will provide EDO participants (must be Cando members) with a road map and tools while they support companies that want to bid on government opportunities.

The Mentorship Program will be running from January 27, 2022 to March 24, 2022.
The goal of the Mentorship Program is to empower Indigenous EDOs, communities and businesses, with the knowledge and the tools necessary to bid on federal government opportunities.
