Government Tender and Procurement Opportunities

The Province of Nova Scotia is investing over one billion dollars in schools, hospitals, and the Marconi campus of the Nova Scotia Community College over the next 5-7 years, an unprecedented level of investment representing significant opportunities for our residents and business community. Together, these projects will create jobs, opportunities for workforce training for underrepresented groups, and direct benefits to local businesses, communities, and the economy.

The local business community now has a great opportunity to become more involved than ever before in the government’s tendering and procurement process (the official system government uses to promote the products and services they need and for businesses to then submit bids on offering that work).
