The Social Purchasing Project was launched in April 2014 with financial support from the federal and provincial government, United Way Toronto & York Region, as well as in-kind support from the City of Toronto. The goal of the project is to help both the public and private sector diversify their supply chain by connecting them to social enterprises interested in procurement opportunities.

We also help build the capacity and raise the profile of the social enterprise sector across the Greater Toronto Golden Horseshoe Area by providing coaching, professional development, and mentorship opportunities as well as an intensive tender-ready training curriculum for social enterprises interested in bidding on larger contracts.
