York University Introduces a Comprehensive Social Procurement Policy

As one of Canada’s first universities, York University has officially introduced a comprehensive social procurement policy in January 2020.

Social procurement considers how procurement – the process of buying goods and services – can positively impact the social well-being of our surrounding communities and assist to reduce poverty, promote economic and social inclusion, and support local economic development and social enterprise.

To learn more about the guiding principles, the current and upcoming projects where the policy is being implemented, and useful contacts, visit York University’s Social Procurement website: https://procurement.info.yorku.ca/social-procurement/.
