Daphane Nelson

Candidate for City Councillor

At both the federal and provincial levels of government, there are new procurement policies in place to ensure Indigenous business owners are given the opportunity to bid on work by these levels of government. I will review the City's procurement policy and absolutely make recommendations to ensure local content is represented in the language.

I would also like to understand the contract awarding process and while, again, the decision is not one for City Council, the strategy and direction do come from that level.
