Request for Proposal (RFP’S)
Finding Contract Opportunities as an Indigenous Business: When a company, organization, or government needs a specific job to be completed, they’ll often post an RFP (Request for Proposal) online. These are great opportunities for your Indigenous business! Learn what an RFP is, how to write a winning proposal, and how to find opportunities from Governments and other organizations.
