Diversifying Your Client Base in Today’s Challenging Business Environment

January 23, 2023 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm


Is it time to “Recession Proof” your business? Have you considered the federal government as a client?

Canada’s economic growth is slowing, and revenue diversification is a key consideration when navigating uncertainty. Did you know that Government of Canada (GoC) spends on average $23 billion annually in sourcing products and services from Canadian suppliers?

Procurement Assistance Canada (PAC) and Business Development Bank of Canada are pleased to invite you to an interactive webinar which will help business leaders learn the right strategies and tools to help avoid dangers, understand how their business is trending and spot opportunities to keep growing.

  • In the last 3 years GoC awarded over 221,000 contracts
  • 95% of contract value ranged from $10,000 to $1.0 million
  • There is a daily average of over 600 open tender contracts

During this webinar you will discover:

  • Economic trends shaping growth opportunities in Canada
  • How you can make the GoC one of your customers
  • What goods & services the government procures
  • What are the requirements and key considerations in supplying to GoC
  • How to find open tender notices
  • How BDC can support your growth opportunities.


  • Pierre Cleroux – Vice President, Research and Chief Economist, BDC
