Webinar: The Canadian Collaborative Procurement Initiative (CCPI)
Jun 17th, 2020


The Canadian Collaborative Procurement Initiative (CCPI) is an approach the Government of Canada has adopted to make some of its procurement instruments available for use by provinces, territories and members of the broader public sector including colleges and institutes.  During 2018-2019, CCPI participants purchased $4.5 million in goods through this initiative.

Participation in the CCPI therefore carries a number of benefits including:

  • creating economies of scale, that results in competitive pricing, terms and conditions;
  • using Federal instruments, rather than having to develop instruments in-house; and
  • streamlining the procurement approach for selected commodities.

This presentation has two main objectives:

  • to increase awareness regarding the procurement opportunities available to colleges and institutes through the CCPI; and
  • to educate interested colleges and institutes on how they can join, and begin to benefit from CCPI procurement opportunities.
