Call to Action: Manufacturers and Service Providers

Manufacturers and Innovators Help with COVID-19 Crisis

Are you a business that can supply products and services in support of Canada’s response to COVID-19?

The Canadian Government wants to hear from you. Find out more here.


Public Works and Government Services Canada has established a web portal and intake form for suppliers able to provide specific products (i.e. N95 masks, gowns, gloves and other PPE) or services (i.e. nursing, food, security).



Innovation, Science, and Economic Development Canada has launched a “call to action” to Canadian manufacturers to help fight COVID-19. They have created a new web page as well as an intake for manufacturers that; make needed supplies, have the potential to rapidly re-tool existing facilities or equipment, or who have skilled workers that could be available to work elsewhere in Canada.



National Research Council of Canada has issued a COVID-19 “Challenge Program” to bring together a national network of researchers and scientific facilities to address the pressing needs for supplies, medical counter measures, and disease-tracking technology. Additionally, through the Industrial Research Assistance Program (IRAP), the NRC has issued a call out, leveraging its existing relationships with Canada’s innovative SMEs, seeking innovative solutions and candidate for funding through Innovative Solutions Canada.
