The Government of Canada buys approximately $14 billion worth of goods and services every year from thousands of suppliers. There are over 100 departments, agencies, Crown Corporations, and Special Operating Agencies.
Public Works and Government Services Canada (PWGSC) is the government’s largest purchasing organization, averaging 50,000 contracts totaling $8 billion annually. While PWGSC buys goods for most departments of the federal government, the departments buy most services themselves.
