NWTAC Purchasing Program

Big Discounts on Purchases

The NWTAC Purchasing Program offers Member Communities major discounts on the purchase of a wide range of supplies needed for running a community government.

The Purchasing Program is a strategic partnership with the Trade Division of the Alberta Association of Municipal Districts and Counties (AAMDC).

The AAMDC is one of the largest public sector buying groups in Canada, making annual total purchases of more than $150 million.  With 145 approved supplies serving 800 member communities, AAMDC brings major buying power to negotiation of member discounts.

Significant discounts are available on a wide variety of supplies, including:

Tires                                         Traffic signs/supplies

Fencing and Posts                   Welding Equipment/Supplies

Office supplies                          Bulk Fuel Tanks
