Indigenous Business Directory (IBD)

Procurement and Supply Chain maintains an Indigenous Business Directory to serve as a resource guide for all government buyers. The Directory is a listing of businesses that have formally registered under the Indigenous Procurement Initiative. Each business is categorized according to the information on goods and services provided in the registration profile. The Directory is comprised of a wide variety of business sectors (i.e. restaurants, accommodations, construction, information technology, consulting services), as well as non-profit organizations and economic development corporations.
The purpose of the Indigenous Business Directory:
  • Help Manitoba government buyers identify Indigenous businesses as bidders and potential suppliers of goods and services required by departments.
  • Provide a networking opportunity for suppliers, Indigenous and non-Indigenous, to do business with one another.
  • Promote procurement from Indigenous business in other ways such as joint ventures and/or sub- contracting.

Directory is updated on a regular basis as registrations by Indigenous business are received. As business profiles and corporate information (address, fax number, etc.) may change over time, Procurement and Supply Chain will also conduct an overall review of the Directory with changes updated periodically. Inclusion of a business in the Directory does not signify an endorsement by the Government of Manitoba.

If you are an Indigenous owned business and have yet to register for the Indigenous Procurement Initiative, more information on the IPI and the application forms are downloadable here. 
Businesses may be requested to provide an updated status of their Indigenous certification and may be subject to audit both prior to and subsequent to contract awards.
An electronic version of the Indigenous Business Directory is available here to view or save to your local computer.
