LifeSciences BC calls for suppliers to assist with equipment for healthcare workers fighting COVID-19
LifeSciences BC is circulating two forms for businesses in BC, one for those needing supplies or equipment, and another for companies that have and can distribute supplies.
The initiative targets entities with medical equipment, PPE, organizations that are able to manufacture critical care equipment that can be inventoried, picked up, and supplied to health authorities for use on the front line.
The federal plan is aimed directly to support businesses’ efforts in rapidly scaling up production or re-tooling their manufacturing lines to develop products made in Canada.
The province gave itself the power to take over supply chains for essential goods and services and centralize procurement for critical supplies needed by healthcare providers.
That decision also grants BC’s provincial government the ability to require retailers and suppliers to report their stock of critical supplies like protective health equipment.
