Imanzi Kayitare

Advisor of Procurement Canada

Economic Development | Community Builder | Supporting Small Businesses Grow

What I bring to the table:

I love my work: Creating Impact:

I enjoy solving complex and challenging problems, over 10 years of public sector experience supporting economic development initiatives and public policy.


An avid community & business leader, I’m passionate about relationship building, collaboration and creating transformative impact.

My passion for community building has led me to get involved in several national and global initiatives that align my interests in entrepreneurship, economic development and innovation.

A key leadership trait that I practice is active listening. Easier said than done, engaging in genuine listening that creates a safe space for dialogue and openness.

I enjoy my work with the #GC (Public Services and Procurement Canada), supporting supplier diversity and small businesses navigate federal procurement opportunities. Along with connecting emerging entrepreneurs & start-ups in Africa to global opportunities.

Specialties: labour market & economic analysis, stakeholder engagement/management, start-up/small business advisory, partnership development, economic development, project management, strategic planning, consulting, coaching
