LOCAL PROCUREMENT

The Fonds de solidarité FTQ has a goods and services procurement policy under which it buys first and foremost from suppliers in Québec. The Fonds also favours purchasing from partner companies, either from Québec or the rest of Canada, whose employees are unionized. Other important criteria are also considered when selecting suppliers, such as product quality and cost, the companies’ financial health and social and environmental concerns, as well as their compliance with agreements entered into.

During the last financial year, 88% of the Fonds’ purchases of goods and services were made from suppliers in Québec.
