Safe textiles, and "Made in Canada"

Canada must be self-sufficient in ensuring the medical safety of its citizens. 

 

SAINT-HYACINTHE, March 26, 2020 – The Canadian Textile Institute Association (CTIA) and its partners and members applaud Prime Minister Justin Trudeau's announcement yesterday of $2 billion to purchase medical equipment such as masks, respirators and uniforms for protection caregivers and healing patients with COVID-19.

Prime Minister Trudeau also announced that Canadian companies have already signed contracts with the government. We are delighted to hear this other good news.

The Canadian textile industry is currently working on strengthening or redeploying its manufacturing capabilities to produce respiratory masks, gowns and other personal protective textile products.

Canada must be self-sufficient to ensure the medical safety of its citizens. Buy Made in Canada is crucial during today’s crisis and for the future of Canadian economy. We are ready to work with our governments.
