The Office investigates complaints and provides dispute resolution services to help parties get back to business when issues arise.

The venue and event are designed as a positive space that is inclusive and accessible for all. Please contact the Office of Small and Medium Enterprises (osme-bpme-pac@pwgsc.gc.ca) if you have any concerns.
