Personal protective equipment
There is an unprecedented demand and urgent need for products to help limit the spread of COVID-19. As a temporary measure, we are speeding up the authorization processes for personal protective equipment (PPE).
We are also allowing certain medical devices to be imported and sold that may not fully meet Canadian regulatory requirements. However, these devices are manufactured to comparable standards.
Training for contact tracing
Register for our free training courses on contact tracing. You will need to make an account before being able to register. Our series of courses supplement local training and onboarding. They are not a requirement to conducting work in your jurisdiction. Health professionals must follow local/regional policies and procedures for contract tracing.
