Program Highlights

CAMSC together with the Black Business Initiative, Nova Scotia Business Inc, the Centre for Women in Business and the ISANS invite emerging and established Minority, Aboriginal and women-owned businesses to join us as we explore business opportunities in Nova Scotia and other parts of the corporate supply chain in Canada.

The morning will consist of educational sessions where you can learn from current exporters, resource providers and take part in a skills building workshop.

Learn what it means to be CAMSC-certified and how it provides you and your business with the connections to gain market access. CAMSC currently has more than 80 corporate members and since their inception in 2004 CAMSC-certified suppliers have been awarded more than 3 billion in contracts with our corporate members.

We invite you to join us in connecting with corporations and find out about emerging project opportunities, key requirements and next steps to doing business with them through the Sourcing Roundtable discussions.
