Canadian Bids and Tenders


Do you know where to find Canadian bids and tenders opportunities, like Request for Proposals (RFP), Request for Qualifications/Quotes (RFQ)s, and Request for Information (RFI) to help your business grow and prosper? If not, you are in the right place. If you’ve identified an RFP or RFQ to pursue, but need a proposal writing service to author a winning submission, you are also in the right place.

When preparing an RFP, it’s vital that you have an understanding of the client, your competitors, and how to differentiate your product or service offering. But none of that matters unless you can successfully find proposals to pursue. That’s the purpose of this article.

We’ve built a comprehensive table of Canadian bids and tenders websites to help our clients identify new projects, and never miss an opportunity to secure a new project and client. Now, we’d like to share that information with you.

Private companies and public municipalities at the local, provincial and federal levels utilize Canadian bid sites and platforms to market their needs for goods and services to prospective vendors. There are literally thousands of Canadian bids and tenders opportunities, every day, coast to coast, for organizations of all sizes to secure new work by submitting professionally written proposals in response to publicly available RFPs, RFQs and RFIs.

By successfully navigating these bid websites, a company can identify which projects they want to pursue, how best to approach these opportunities, and what structure the RFP should take to be successful. We’ve developed a comprehensive table to help you navigate the myriad proposal opportunities available in Canada, and short-list those most likely to have projects that your company can successfully compete on, and win.

The table of Canadian bids and tenders is easy to navigate and provides a broad range of bid platforms to suit the needs of every business. The table includes the site name, website address, brief description, geographic scope and the types of proposals usually posted.

It’s important to highlight that our table of Canadian bids and tenders opportunities does not focus solely on large-scale, commonly used RFP sites such as Ariba and Bonfire. It also includes proposal platforms that feature local and regional proposal opportunities, like BC Bid and SaskTenders.

Finding Canadian public tender websites has become even more critical to business success due to the economic challenges created by COVID-19. It’s more important than ever for businesses to find opportunities to capture new revenue opportunities. We sincerely hope the following table of RFP, RFQ and RFI bid and tender sites help you identify and secure new new contracts for your business.

If we’ve missed any sites, please let us know. And be sure to bookmark or link to this page as we update this table of bid and tender opportunities regularly.
