Collection of personal protective equipment (PPE) on the request of the Québec Ministry of Health and Social Services

Mar. 25th, 2020

We are issuing an appeal today in the spirit of mutual aid, so that together we can get through the health crisis related to COVID-19. More specifically, the Québec government is asking for the collaboration of the QFMA’s members in assessing options in providing better support to the health system. As some of the Association’s members are in the Major Business category, you may be able to help in this regard.

The government is seeking products to meet the demand in the supplying of Personal Protective Equipment (PPE). Here is the list of products that could play a key role in reducing the risk of having a short to mid-term equipment shortage. The products would have to be in sealed boxes or cartons that have never been opened, or on palettes. Please note that the government is looking for materials and equipment currently in stock, and not on order, and the price paid will be subject to approval of the ministry, and will be at cost price.

All the links are in French.

With the Association’s member companies operating in a sector providing for public protection needs, should you happen to have these types of products in your business, write to and send your shipping form (in French) to Groupe Robert which is supporting the government in this initiative at the following address: EPICOVID19@robert.ca.

Thank you in advance for your collaboration.
