Administered by the non-profit Fraser Basin Council, BuySmart benefits from the participation of leaders in business, public bodies and non-profit organizations who are willing to share procurement strategies and learn from each other.

Thanks to everyone who attended our November 30 workshop "Maximizing the Impact of Sustainable Purchasing."
This was an engaging session on supply chain management, with a focus on how to integrate sustainability into bid documents, create performance scorecards for suppliers and evaluate proposals. Our particular appreciation to guest presenters Jason Boyce (Nature's Path) and Victoria Wakefield (UBC) for their valuable insights.
Watch for new events coming this spring!
