Business leaders across Canada are contributing to the fight against COVID-19

Canadian businesses and business leaders are stepping up in the fight against COVID-19. For some, that means launching new philanthropic initiatives to help those in need or shifting production lines to manufacture much-needed personal protective equipment and medical devices. For others, it means ensuring Canadians continue to have access to groceries, medicine, communications, financial resources, and essential services.

Our Call to Action

Business Steps Up

Business and Government Working Together

“We're taking an aggressive, proactive procurement approach to secure life-saving equipment and supplies. Industry has answered the call and we've successfully tapped into both existing and new supply sources.”
“Canadian companies are answering the call to provide critical support to our health care workers, who are on the front lines of our country’s fight against COVID-19. Government will work with industry to find solutions.”
"This mass mobilization of government, business, communities and private citizens to slow the spread of COVID-19 represents one of the largest and most ambitious efforts ever undertaken."

Tracking the War Effort

To fight the spread of COVID-19, Canadian businesses and business leaders have mobilized resources, funds and capabilities in a manner not seen since the Second World War. Stay up to date with this timeline. 

Medical Equipment & Devices

From ventilators to respirators and gowns, businesses are shifting production lines to ensure front-line workers have enough supplies of personal protective equipment and medical devices in order to care for Canadians.

Essential Services

Whether it is keeping people connected through telecommunications or ensuring stores are stocked with food and medicine, businesses are providing essential services to keep the country running and allow Canadians to remain at home.

Helping Communities

The health emergency has been especially difficult for vulnerable populations and that is why it has been so important for businesses to provide funding and other resources either directly to communities or to charities.

Financial Support

To mitigate the economic impacts of the health emergency, it has been critical for banks and insurance companies to provide flexible and trusted solutions for businesses of all sizes and Canadians from across the country.
