COVID-19 External Sources to Assist in Finding/Supplying PPE

External Sources to Assist in Finding / Supplying PPE

Given the current high demand for personal protective equipment (PPE) in Canada, a number of websites have been developed which seek to provide opportunities for companies to offer different types of PPE that they have available to potential buyers. Please note that if you’re seeking medical grade PPE from these sites, it’s important to ensure that company offering the product has a Medical Device Establishment Licence (MDEL) (database here), as we don’t believe that the site hosts are confirming this in most cases. It should also be noted that Health Canada is providing MDELs on an attestation basis at this time, so buyer beware is encouraged even from those that possess an MDEL. Buyers can also refer to Health Canada’s page about medical devices for use against the coronavirus to find out more about licensed products here.
