IRB Services

The Government of Canada uses federal procurement as a lever to promote industrial and regional economic development objectives. Those objectives are clearly stated in Industry Canada's Industrial and Regional Benefits (IRB) Policy guidelines:

Amongst those requirements is often a need for a client to consider in its proposal specified strategic industry sectors, regions, and a consideration of small business.

The C&I Canada Team will construct on its client's behalf a coordinated and targeted compliant IRB proposal that enables Industry Canada to:

  • Evaluate how our client intends to implement the IRB program including specific projects
  • Assess the adequacy of the IRB program to demonstrate the ability of it and its team to generate and sustain cost-effective indigenous industry solutions, to provide the greatest level of strategic self-reliance and operational benefit to Canadian military capability
  • Monitor the progress and achievement of activities defined in the IRB program
