The Social Procurement Roundtable convenes anchor institutions, City of Vancouver staff, Federal Government representatives and social enterprises to build connections, share best-practices and inform Municipal, Provincial, and Federal social procurement policy development and implementation.
Social procurement decisions build community capital, not just economic capital, and it generates intentional community benefits. As social enterprise sales grow, they are able to achieve increased social value goals; such as hiring more persons with barriers, creating training and employment development opportunities, advancing diverse culture, enhancing social inclusion, or contributing to local economies. When you buy from a social enterprise a ripple effect occurs in your community.
