Ryerson University comes onboard CAMSC’s Corporate Circle
Increasing Ryerson’s purchasing from Indigenous and racialized-owned businesses
Canadian Aboriginal and Minority Suppliers Council (CAMSC) is proud to announce a partnership with our newest corporate member Ryerson University.
Ryerson will now have access to a new range of products and services from Indigenous and racialized-owned businesses that operate in Canada. These suppliers are vetted by CAMSC certification, which includes the criteria that the business is at least 51% owned, managed, and controlled by an Indigenous Person(s) or racialized person(s).
Not only will this enable the university to diversify the supply chain within which Ryerson conducts business, but also allows us to support the CAMSC’s efforts to increase engagement, inclusion and utilization of products and services from its diverse network.
The premise is that every purchase the university makes carries an economic, environmental, and social impact. So, when we make purchases with social procurement as a consideration, we are intentionally placing social value alongside economic value in our decision-making process.
To learn more about Ryerson’s procurement process, please visit the Social Procurement page on the Financial Services website.
For assistance finding and connecting with a supplier from the CAMSC network, or if you have any questions about social procurement at Ryerson, please contact the Financial Services Purchasing Services department.
