Dear Friends of Canada:

I wanted to take this opportunity to let you know that Canada has formally announced its participation at Dubai Expo 2020! This has been the result of the entire Canada –UAE community coming together, so I thank each and every one of you for your efforts, great and small.
I also wanted to let you know that a Request for Information (RFI) for the design, build, construct and dismantle of the Canada Pavilion, including the exhibition component, has been published: 
The link is here:  
This will be followed by a full request for proposal (RFP) expected to be posted by March 31, 2019.  
All major contracts for the supply and service of Canada’s presence at EXPO 2020 will be tendered and contracted through the Government of Canada’s regular procurement process; guided by an open, transparent, and merit-based process. This may include, inter alia, communications, hosting, gift shop and other products and services necessary to operate the pavilion. These opportunities will be posted publicly in the coming months.  
You can sign up for alerts about EXPO procurement processes and opportunities on the Procurement website site.
Thank you again for your support and partnership as we move towards showcasing Canada to the world in Dubai.
