Process for Awarding Contracts

The Cities and Towns Act establishes the legal framework governing the awarding of contracts by municipalities. In general, the allocation procedures differ depending on whether it is:

  • a public tender for a contract involving an expenditure of $100,000 or more;
  • a call for tenders by invitation for a contract involving an expenditure of at least $25,000 and less than $100,000;
  • to award a contract by mutual agreement involving an expenditure of less than $ 25 000.
