Welcome to the www.CanadianEnvironmental.com
Welcome to the www.CanadianEnvironmental.com Newsletter. This is
a 100% opt-in newsletter that provides environmental professionals
with a Canadian perspective on environmental resources that are
available and other topics of interest. This month we have put together
a summary of the electronic tendering services and other resources
available for accessing environmental tenders online. The July 2004
issue will highlight some of the latest programs, products, and
news related to Energy Efficiency and Alternative Energy.
JETRO's Environment Japan is for foreign companies and organizations
in the waste control and recycling technology sector. It is a trade
fair within Japan’s largest environmental trade fair called WASTEC.
Please note: The application deadline for exhibiting at Environment
Japan is July 30, 2004.
- Finding Environmental Tenders Online -
As it is not widely known that a number of the Provinces have launched
their own official tendering websites over the past couple of years,
we have put together a summary of these and other resources below.
The sophistication of the tendering websites also continues to grow
with many offering email notification of opportunities, and some
offering online bidding.
Note: CanadianEnvironmental.com has a section on business development
resources, including International business development, that can
be accessed at anytime in the 'Environmental Industry - Business
Opportunity Resources' subsection of Industry Info at www.canadianenvironmental.com/industry
MERX (www.merx.com) has been the
central online tendering service for accessing federal, provincial,
and other tenders since 1997, with their government contract most
recently being renewed in May 2004. The MERX service is based on
a searchable online database of tenders from Federal, Provincial
and Municipal Departments and Agencies, as well as School Boards
and Hospitals from across Canada. The Provinces/Territories that
post their opportunities on MERX are: Saskatchewan, Manitoba, Ontario,
New Brunswick, Nova Scotia, Prince Edward Island, Newfoundland and
Labrador, and Nunavut. Although the tenders can be searched for
free, complete tender documents are only available to subscribers
(i.e., $263.40 per annum) or at a cost of $39.95 per order.
Other private tendering services include:
