Contract Management

Procedure for awarding contracts


The Cities and Towns Act establishes the legal context for the adjudication of contracts by municipalities.  In general, the procedures vary for:

  • a call for public tenders, for all contracts that involve an expenditure of $101,100 or more;
  • a call for invitational tenders, for all contracts that involve an expenditure of more than $50,001 but less than $101,100;
  • awarding a contract that involves an expenditure of less than $50,001 by mutual agreement.


Municipal contracts are awarded by resolution of the Town Council or by managers holding a delegation of power to that effect under By-Law No. 2013-52 which is the internal by-law of the municipal Council pertaining to the delegation of powers in matters relating to contracts and to human resources.
