The requirement for federal departments and agencies ensures a minimum 5% of the total value of contracts are held by Indigenous businesses.
The Government of Canada is increasing economic opportunities for First Nations, Inuit and Métis businesses through the federal procurement process.
For the purposes of the 5% target, an Indigenous business is defined as:
Elders, band and tribal councils
businesses registered in the Government of Canada’s Indigenous Business Directory
businesses on a beneficiary business list
The mandatory 5% minimum Indigenous procurement target is being implemented in 3 phases to allow departments and agencies to update planning and processes to support implementation.
All departments and agencies are to meet or exceed the 5% target no later than the fiscal year-end of 2024 to 2025, as set out in the schedule below.
The schedule is based on an assessment of the level of readiness of each applicable department and agency to meet the 5% target. The assessment used prior departmental procurement plans related to the Procurement Strategy for Indigenous Business.
