CAPsource is the only national procurement program dedicated specifically to strategic sourcing for capital equipment. Our trusted and proven processes help healthcare facilities obtain maximum value for a wide range of products, while upholding fair, open and transparent sourcing practices that adhere to provincial and federal procurement regulations.

With more than two decades of expertise in leading large groups and negotiations, our proven processes and experienced negotiators drive the most effective outcome for each participating healthcare organization.

CAPsource Members always make their own purchasing decisions, and participate on a voluntary basis. We aggregate volume on a national scale and create a collaborative environment that provides the information needed for each organization to make the best decision possible.
