Procurement Assistance Canada (PAC) was created within Public Services and Procurement Canada to advocate on behalf of small and medium enterprises (SMEs) in federal procurement. PAC improves SMEs access to government contract opportunities by reducing procurement barriers, simplifying the contracting process, providing advice to SMEs wishing to do business with the government, collaborating to improve procurement policies and best practices and working with SMEs to ensure their concerns are brought forward and heard.

The Government of Canada is committed to giving small and medium enterprises (SME) access to compete for government business. PAC represents the views of smaller businesses and encourage their participation in federal government procurement.
