Government Procurement opportunities for EU Companies in Canada

The Canada- European Union Comprehensive Economic and Trade Agreement (“CETA)” makes it possible for EU-based companies to participate in government procurement processes in Canada, not only to the general procurement for federal departments and ministries, but also, to those of the provinces and territories. 

Companies interested in contracting with the government of Canada through CETA need to understand the rules and requirements currently in place that are administrated separately by federal and provincial governments. One of the biggest barriers to accessing CETA opportunities, is the lack of knowledge of available opportunities and process methods. To effectively identify and benefit from the opportunities afforded by CETA, it is important to understand the priorities generating these opportunities and the process by which they are accessed. 

The publication Government Procurement in Canada focuses on procurement opportunities for EU companies that do not carry on their business in Canada through a corporation.
