WSIB Vendor Forum – Input on Procurement

Wednesday, April 19 - 2017
9 am - 12 pm

Take part in a WSIB Vendor Forum

We want to hear from you how we can improve our procurement processes.

The WSIB depends on vendors to provide a wide range of services that directly or indirectly serve the workers and employers of Ontario.

So it’s important that our procurement process works simply, efficiently and transparently for the vendors who do business with us, and for those who would like to.

You can help us make our process work better for you by taking part in a vendor forum being set up to seek your input.
