How to do business with the PHAI

Local businesses can learn how to access contracting opportunities associated with the PHAI projects by visiting the PHAI at 115 Toronto Road, Port Hope, on Thursdays from 1:00 p.m. to 3:00 p.m. Procurement staff will be available at that time to describe the types of procurements, including Requests for Expression of Interest and Requests for Quotation, that are facilitated through the PHAI.

During the drop-in sessions, the procurement team will highlight the resources available to businesses with an interest in PHAI contracts, which include the following:

  • The Port Hope & District Chamber of Commerce, in partnership with the Clarington Board of Trade and Office Economic Development and the Municipality of Port Hope, has created the Port Hope Contractor Portal ( as a platform for local service providers to network with each other and connect with major contractors. It also provides a gateway to contract postings and vendor information.
  • The PHAI posts contract opportunities on its website under Careers & Contract Opportunities. Full postings are available on

No appointment is necessary for the drop-in sessions. For more information, contact the PHAI at 905.885.0291 or
