Procurement opening for EU

Ontario and Quebec will allow foreign companies to bid on infrastructure projects in their provinces, including the building of schools, hospitals and universities, as part of a developing trade agreement with the European Union, the Globe and Mail reported. The information was included in documents obtained by public-sector unions, which are against the deal. Every province, with the exception of Ontario and Quebec, will remove hospitals, schools and universities from the eligible list of infrastructure projects.
