Ontario Premier Doug Ford is appealing to the province’s manufacturing sector to help produce key medical supplies.
Ford says there are shortages of many items needed by health workers because of global demand due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
The premier says any company that can produce items like ventilators, face masks, surgical gowns, protective eye-wear and hand sanitizers should reach out to the government.
The province has established a dedicated website to help manufacturers communicate what they can provide.
