Supply Chain Code of Ethics

Our goal is to ensure an ethical, professional, and accountable Broader Public Sector Supply Chain. For more information, read the Ontario BPS Supply Chain Code of Ethics.

Please Note: Cambrian College will not accept goods or invoices from suppliers without a purchase order. Read our purchase order terms and conditions.

Cooperative Purchasing

Cambrian College, along with other public sector organizations (currently: City of Greater Sudbury, College Boreal, Laurentian University, Rainbow District School Board, Conseil scolaire catholique du Nouvel-Ontario, Sudbury Catholic District School Board, Conseil scolaire public du Gran Nord de l’Ontario, Greater Sudbury Utilities, Health Sciences North and Science North) are members of the Sudbury Regional Buying Group.

If Cambrian College participates in these opportunities, a notice will be posted on the webpage indicating where the opportunity can be located.
