Pre-event survey - Training on government procurement in Canada
Following the implementation of the Comprehensive Economic and Trade Agreement (CETA) between Canada and the European Union, government procurement opportunities in Canada are more open than ever to bids from European companies. In this context, during the Spring 2021 the Delegation of the EU to Canada will offer a free training session to European companies interested in bidding for contracts in Canada, and featuring practical tips and best practices shared by Canadian experts.
This short pre-event survey is designed to identify the needs of Europe-based companies, especially SMEs, interested in government procurement opportunities in Canada. Responses gathered in the survey will be used to tailor the content of the training session to participants' needs, and to maximize the training's benefits.
We are grateful for your time and contribution!
Responses to this survey are treated in compliance with the EU's General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR). You can read about the EU's and contractor's GDPR policy, and consent with it, at the bottom of this page.
