Offering your translation or transcription services in the official languages

To offer the Translation Bureau your translation or transcription services in the official languages as a self-employed individual, freelancer or firm, you must qualify for a supply arrangement (SA).

Twice a year, the Translation Bureau, in cooperation with the Public Services and Procurement Canada Acquisitions Branch, launches a request for supply arrangements (RFSA) process for qualified suppliers to fulfill its requirements in these two service categories. As mentioned in the RFSA, you must provide your Canada Revenue Agency business number (BN) and your procurement business number (PBN).

Note: Reliability or security clearance

Suppliers themselves cannot request reliability or security clearance. They must be sponsored by a federal department. Only after they have obtained a SA can the Translation Bureau sponsor them if it finds that they need such clearance.
