INDIGENOUS PROCUREMENT INITIATIVE:
Manitoba is committed to community economic development as a key
component of its economic strategy. It intends to develop a provincial
economy that is more inclusive, equitable and sustainable.
Procurement practices are one means that can be used to contribute to
