Northcore Awarded Vendor of Record Status by Ontario Government

TORONTO, ONTARIO--(Marketwire - Nov. 17, 2011) - Northcore Technologies Inc. (TSX:NTI)(OTCBB:NTLNF), a global provider of asset management and social commerce solutions, announced today that it has been selected as a Vendor of Record for the Task Based Information and Information Technology arrangement within the Ontario Provincial Government purchasing framework.

This status streamlines the process through which the Ontario Government may choose to engage Northcore for Information Technology solutions and services. It will also allow Northcore broader access to such opportunities within the Ontario public service at large.
