Sturgeon County Economic Development supports business to business connection! We want your business to get the right information for doing business with others in the region. Companies can increase the benefits to their business by sourcing markets close to home and working with those around them. We are supportive of companies making connection with one another and are regularly featuring procurement and supply chain information sessions for major companies in the area – in the effort to connect local small and medium sized enterprises with larger ones.
The Power of Purchasing Local
There are many benefits for companies looking to source more local industry's goods, products and services.
Improves supply chain efficiency: Shorter lead times for deliveries and an increased number of reliable suppliers can help companies improve their supply chain efficiency.
Strengthens relationships with the communities: The positive socio-economic impacts from local procurement give Canadian companies an opportunity to meet the rising expectations of host country populations for international companies to create jobs and other benefits.
Creates local business opportunity: Canadian companies can benefit from expanding their networks, this also means expanding networks close to home! As companies become more connected, their knowledge of economic opportunities increase. Local companies can benefit significantly from exploring the local market demand and meeting those needs as a part of their client outreach portfolio.
Below are several resources to connect you with local businesses and their procurement processes.
We will continue to offer procurement information sessions on an ongoing basis. Any upcoming sessions will be listed below. If you are a Sturgeon County business that would like to host a procurement session to share your procurement policies and processes with local businesses please contact Leanne McBean at 780.939.8296.
