Supply Chain Resiliency Program

Help us better understand your manufacturing business

During the COVID-19 pandemic, the City of Surrey supported provincial and federal efforts to identify potential manufacturers capable of producing in-demand personal protective equipment. During this outreach, over 10 local manufacturers pivoted to develop PPE for communities across Canada during the height of the pandemic. Ultimately over $15 million in revenue was generated for local businesses because of this opportunity.

With funding from the Province of BC, the City of Surrey is implementing an Industrial Capabilities Inventory to understand manufacturing capabilities of local manufacturers and identify companies that could potentially support emergency supplies production beyond pandemic emergencies, as well as identify other business diversification opportunities.

Gain access to new opportunities

Information collected through this project will provide the information necessary for participating companies to access:

  • Future collaboration opportunities,
  • Support for technology adoption,
  • Opportunities to support federal and provincial emergency procurement, and
  • Suggested methods for de-risking future market opportunities.
