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 Rural Municipalities of Alberta (RMA) Trade Division. 

The RMA 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, RMA brings major buying power to negotiation of member discounts.
