Destination Canada (DC) is looking for a Manager, Procurement to lead our procurement team.
You’re a negotiator and a consultant. Someone who evaluates, communicates and, most importantly, is both a team lead and a team player. A coach and a mentor, you guide teams to success.

Your role will centre on planning, executing and controlling procurement initiatives (like purchasing strategies, business case development, cost accounting and financial evaluation methodologies) integral to the organization’s growth. You’ll develop strategies and procedures that will ensure your team efficiently delivers quality service. Collaborating with colleagues, partners and clients, you’ll make strategic recommendations to the DC management and its Board of Directors, developing solid supply, product and service agreements that help bring the Canada brand to life.
