Government of Canada – PPE Supply Hub

  • The Government of Canada has launched a new web hub to bring together available resources for organizations buying and selling personal protective equipment (PPE).
  • The Supply Hub connects Canadian organizations from coast to coast to coast with federal, provincial, territorial and other resources and information about PPE, including consumer guidance.
  • Buyers will find PPE supplier lists, in addition to guidance to help plan their PPE purchases. As Public Services and Procurement Canada continues to engage with our partners and advisory groups, the hub will evolve to include additional resources.

Disinfect Express

We provide a disinfecting and odour control fogging service.  Our environmentally product is effective in killing 99.999% of viruses and bacteria, including Covid-19.  The disinfectant we use is environmentally friendly and Health Canada approved.

We our services can be very valuable to the greenhouse industry  in their efforts to prevent and control the spread of Covid-19 in the workplace.  In particularly I  think our fogging services are ideal for use in bunkhouses, warehouses, offices and lunch rooms.

Ontario PPE Suppliers

To support business-owners, workers and the economic recovery of the province, the government has launched a website to provide businesses with information on personal protective equipment (PPE) suppliers. The Workplace PPE Supplier Directory has an up-to-date list of Ontario companies and business associations that are ready to supply personal protective equipment.

Rapid Response Platform

Does your company require PPE as Canada returns to work? As Canada’s industries return to work, there is an increased demand for PPE.  BASF has also sponsored and developed a platform, the Rapid Response Platform, that automatically matches supply with demand, simplifying supplier discovery during the procurement process. Check out the website for more details or to make a request.
