Contract Security Workshops: Online or In Person

Are you interested in supplying or subcontracting with the federal government? Have you had issues obtaining an appropriate security clearance?

You’re invited to attend a free Security Clearance information session hosted by The Office of Small and Medium Enterprises, Small Business BC, and the Canadian Industrial Security Directorate.

You will have your choice to attend online via WebEx, or in person at Small Business BC’s offices in downtown Vancouver on June 28th at 1:00 to 3:30 pm.

These Contract Security Workshops have been created to teach you what you need to know and most importantly, what you need to do, when your organization is considering bidding on government contracts with security requirements.

The workshops are being offered to you at no cost but participants are responsible for their own transportation, accommodation, and meal costs. For more information on the Contract Security Program, please visit
