Supplier Diversity at Nova Bus
Nova Bus believes in the importance of diversity and the significant added value of working with underrepresented communities in its industry. This value is reflected in our efforts to diversify our supplier base: we are committed to supplier diversity and are always actively looking for suppliers that can support our supply chain.
Nova Bus is dedicated to including minority-owned (MBE*), indigenous-owned (IBE), women-owned (WBE), disability-owned (DOBE), veteran-owned (VBE & SDVBE), and 2SLGBTQI+ -owned (2SLGBTQI+BE) businesses when possible. Suppliers that want to work with Nova Bus must demonstrate the ability to provide high-quality goods and services that are competitively priced, reliable, and offer a high level of customer service.
Nova Bus is a proud Corporate Member of the below supplier diversity associations and requires qualified suppliers to be certified or in the process of being certified by an established supplier certification association. If your company is already certified by a Canadian supplier diversity association, or if you would like more information on how your business qualifies for it, please contact our Nova Bus Diversity Liaison Officer to request more information.
*MBE means persons, groups, or communities that experience significant collective barriers in participating in society including attitudinal, historic, social and environmental barriers based on age, ethnicity, disability, economic status, gender, nationality, race, sexual orientation etc.
