Building Ontario’s domestic supply chain
Ontario continues to fight against COVID-19 by procuring necessary essential services, PPE and critical supplies and equipment from Ontario-based manufacturers. We have:
- procured over 204 million N95 masks from the Brockville, Ontario 3M plant
- sourced over 200 million surgical/protective masks through four Ontario-based companies: PRIMED, Canada Masq, Viva Healthcare Packaging Canada and JY Care
Over the next 18 months, over 92% of the province’s investments in PPE will be with Ontario and Canadian-based manufacturers.
