As part of Hydro One's commitment to First Nations and Métis peoples, promoting business and workforce development and increasing access to procurement opportunities to Aboriginal businesses is one of the guiding principles of our Supply Chain practices.
Aboriginal inclusion language is now included in most of our Requests for Proposals, and consideration is determined on a project-by-project basis.
Factors considered, include:
Ownership of Bidder/Proponent, Partners or Subcontractors
Aboriginal community/person involvement in the delivery of the materials/services
Active diversity programs and policies.
If you would like to do business with Hydro One, please visit our Doing Business page. There, you can register as a Bidder and also sign up to be on our Aboriginal Business Directory. Being on the Directory will give your company exposure to other vendors who may wish to partner with an Aboriginal business like yours!
The following documents have been developed to provide Aboriginal businesses with information on doing business with Hydro One:
Businesses eligible under the Canadian government’s Procurement Strategy for Aboriginal Business (PSAB) are encouraged to also register with the Federal Government’s National Aboriginal Business Directory (ABD).
