Municipal Group Buying Program
Group buying can be a powerful tool to help municipalities reduce the cost of the products and services they need. By combining forces, municipalities are often able to access high-quality, competitively-priced goods and services, while freeing up staff time.
LAS is pleased to introduce the Municipal Group Buying Program to help Ontario municipalities purchase things they use on an every day basis. This new program is one of the leading public sector buying groups in Canada, leveraging the combined buying power of over 1,600 municipalities with over 100 different suppliers. Not only does this program reduce your municipality’s time and expense for products and services, but it allows you to buy from local suppliers using national discounts.
Through bulk purchase agreements and exclusive access to a Canada-wide municipal partnership, LAS has been able to secure special pricing for the products and services offered. This ensures that all municipalities, regardless of size, are able to get the best pricing possible.
All offerings have undergone a formal competitive bid process on your behalf, ensuring compliance with purchasing bylaws. All agreements are compliant with trade agreements.
There are no minimum purchase requirements, membership fees, or binding contracts. You will be working with your fellow municipalities from all across Canada to reduce costs and save money!
Current Offerings under this program include:
Northern Ontario (from Nipissing/Parry Sound Districts)

Tanner Watt, Municipal Energy Specialist
