Social Procurement Value Proposition

This project aims to develop a tool for cities and municipalities to use to negotiate and evaluate how large real estate development projects coming into communities, especially vulnerable neighbourhoods, can provide benefits back to that community. The specific focus of these benefits is on providing work and training opportunities for local residents, as well as purchasing from local small businesses (called social enterprises) already focused on employing local residents who face a variety of challenges to getting and keeping a traditional 9 to 5 job.
