At Resolute, we are committed to a resilient supply chain that contributes to socio-economic development of our operating communities. We are promoting the development of regional procurement with a portal where companies can register to become Resolute suppliers. Our supply chain is in large part built upon the efforts of local, regional and Indigenous goods and services providers, and we value the role they play in generating growth and opportunity in their communities.
In focusing on local and regional supply chains, the registry allows us to call on qualified local vendors in order to effectively, efficiently and – above all – regionally manage the specific needs of each of our facilities. Our objective is to obtain value-added goods and services aligned with our Regional Procurement Policy Guidelines and Indigenous Procurement Policy Guidelines.
Our Quebec operations began using the registry in 2020, and it was extended to our Ontario and U.S. operations in 2021. Over 2,800 businesses have signed up since its launch. Companies can register by completing a form on the Resolute Regional Supplier Registration Portal.
Suppliers should note that Resolute’s regional supplier registry is separate from the Cognibox™ supplier qualification process, which provides solutions for training, contractor management and compliance.
