Offering your services to the city

The only way to submit a proposal to offer products or services is to respond to a public or invitational tender or request for quote. If your business is registered in the supplier database, you will have a better chance of being invited to participate in the bidding process.

Lobbying is governed by the city’s by-law on contract management. You must ensure that you consult the by-law and comply with the requirements before taking any steps to promote your products or services.
