Thank you for your interest in becoming a potential supplier with RBC. Each year, RBC buys well over $6 billion worth of goods and services from its approved suppliers. To find out more about RBC please visit our Corporate Profile web site.


How to Register to Become a Potential Supplier with RBC

To be considered as a potential supplier, you must register by completing our Supplier Information Form. Once you complete and submit the form, your information will be part of our Potential Supplier Database, where it will remain for two (2) years. The Supplier Information Form is your opportunity to tell us about your company, and it is our primary source of supplier information that we refer to when we assess the market for new sourcing opportunities.

Completing the registration ensures your company will be considered for bid but it does not guarantee that your company will receive an invitation to bid or a contract from us, nor does it imply that your company has any type of procurement relationship with us, either now or in the future. In the event RBC considers a sourcing event for products or services described in your supplier registration, your application may be considered and we may contact you.

Once you have completed and submitted our Supplier Information Form, you will receive an electronic acknowledgement confirming that we have received your information. For assistance in completing the Supplier Information Form, please refer to our Help page or if you have trouble submitting the form contact us at
