CFTA Notice of Participation

The Canadian Free Trade Agreement (CFTA) requires any municipality wanting to participate in a buying group to publish a declaration of its intent. If you are enrolled in one or more LAS programs, then your municipality is considered to be participating in a buying group.

To create your municipality’s declaration, we recommend posting the following wording to your tendering website for a minimum of two weeks. 

[Insert Municipality Name] intends to participate in one or more procurements conducted by Local Authority Services (LAS) between [month/year to month/year, for indefinite term projects include one year only and post annually ]. For further information and access to LAS request for proposal (RFP) notices, please review the website at
