Procurement/Tendering Opportunities

The Alberta Purchasing Connection (APC) is the official online source of City of Edmonton procurement opportunities for all suppliers and contractors.

Sustainable Procurement

Every purchase has intended and unintended economic, environmental and social impact. Sustainable procurement is about consciously considering those impacts and seeking to make intentional positive community contributions.

The City will integrate economic, quality, environmental and social value considerations into procurement processes for goods, services and construction projects, to the extent permitted by the City’s trade agreement obligations. 

The umbrella of City Policy C556A, Sustainable Procurement, includes, ethical standards, environmental sustainability and social value considerations. 

Living Wage

Edmonton City Council approved a revised Living Wage Policy for City of Edmonton Employees and Employees of Contracted Services on November 5, 2019.

Administration implemented the living wage criteria for staff of contracted services who perform duties on City Property — including parks, roadways, and facilities.

Living wage is generally defined as the minimum amount a person must earn to pay for the basic costs of living for oneself and one’s family within a specific geographic community. 

Unlike minimum wage which is set by the Provincial Government and requires all employers pay at least the minimum wage, a Living Wage is not required by law. Edmonton’s Living wage is calculated annually by the Edmonton Social Planning Council.
