Canoe Procurement Group Purchasing Program

NSFM has formally partnered with like-minded municipal associations across Canada to form the Canoe Procurement Group of Canada. By combining the purchasing power of over 5,000 public and not-for-profit organizations throughout the country, Canoe is one of the largest cooperative procurement groups of its kind in Canada. This means that you will be able to access a wider range of trade-compliant products and services at preferred rates.

Through Canoe, NSFM trade will continue to support you in your important work of building vibrant, sustainable communities.
