Social Procurement: Building a Social Value Marketplace
In every community, regardless of size and location, there is a market place for the sale of goods and services. Every transaction has an economic, environmental and social impact. Integrating Social Procurement policy into the existing buying of goods and services and infrastructure developments creates community capital, not merely economic transactions.

Social procurement is a valuable tool for local CED activities by engaging multiple stakeholders and leveraging existing purchasing to create greater local community value. Buy Social Canada will share case studies, tools and resources to provide you the capacity to adopt or enhance a social procurement in your community.

L’approvisionnement social : bâtir une valeur sociale de marché
Dans chaque communauté, peu importe où elle se trouve et sa taille, il y a un marché pour la vente de biens et de services. Chaque transaction a un impact économique, environnemental et social. Intégrer une politique d’approvisionnement social dans l’achat de biens et de services existants et dans le développement des infrastructures crée un capital communautaire, et pas seulement des transactions économiques.

L’approvisionnement social est un outil indispensable aux activités locales de DEC, car il mobilise de multiples acteurs et mise sur l’approvisionnement déjà existant afin de créer une plus grande valeur communautaire locale. Buy Social Canada partagera des études de cas, des outils et des ressources pour vous aider à adopter ou à améliorer l’approvisionnement social dans votre communauté.
