CCSPI VISION

All local governments and First Nations in Vancouver Island and Coastal Communities have access to advice to develop in-house tools and skills to implement social procurement. 

CCSPI MISSION

To improve the health of our communities and the strength of our economies by changing the culture of public sector procurement. 

CCSPI BACKGROUND

  • The Village of Cumberland was the first in the Association of Vancouver Island and Coast Communities (AVICC) region to adopt and implement a Social Procurement Framework.
  • The Towns of Qualicum Beach and Ladysmith are also implementing procurement with a strategic focus to benefit the community.
  • The City of Victoria Council has adopted the Good Jobs + Good Business = Better Community Action Plan and is working toward implementation.

Across the region, there is about $300 million in procurement that could integrate social impact.
