“We know supporting local businesses boosts the local economy and builds a stronger community for everyone,” says Tammy Moyse, Manager Procurement & Supply Chain. “This success depends on our relationships with construction associations, Indigenous partnerships, local entrepreneurs and many more who help us reach these collective goals.”
Local businesses are more reactive to local needs and trends and share our community’s commitment to positive outcomes for Regina and area. The construction industry and the City continue to strengthen their relationship to deliver the best value and while prioritizing the needs of the organization. This collaborative approach enhances the overall experience for all involved and ensures that the construction industry continues to evolve in a positive direction.
