The We Want To Work vision + Supporting Partners
We Want to Work is a coalition of groups committed to Winnipeg and Manitoba’s social, economic, and environmental health. We care about addressing poverty, supporting good jobs and employment, building sustainable local economies, and taking climate action.
We believe that one of the best ways to achieve these goals would be for government to consider community benefits in their purchasing. All levels of government purchase a significant amount of goods and services in a year.
If we made sure that even a very small portion of this spending supported community benefits, it would have a huge social, economic, and environmental return on investment.
Our coalition advocates and collaborates with the government to adopt and utilize social procurement as a tool to achieve community benefits through existing purchasing.
