Digital Bonding   

The City only accepts digital bonds. Scanned bonds (Bid Bond & Agreement to Bond) will not be accepted. Vendors are encouraged to contact their surety provider well in advance of submitting a bid as the process may take several weeks. More information about digital bonds can be found on the Surety Association of Canada (SAC) website.

Digital Signatures  

The City requires digital signatures for execution of its Purchasing Agreements with successful vendors using the DocuSign system. Successful vendors are not required to acquire any software and are able to successfully execute the agreements in a secure manner without physical contact. When an Agreement is ready for signature, the vendor's authorized signatory(ies), as indicated in the submission, will receive an automated email requesting signature via DocuSign.
