Medtech Canada Statement on COVID-19

 

Toronto, March 18, 2020 – Medtech Canada President and CEO, Brian Lewis, issued the following statement on COVID-19:

“The health and well-being of Canadians is of the utmost importance to Medtech Canada. Our members provide products and technologies that are of critical importance to the delivery of health care such as diagnostic tests that enable the diagnosis of disease, personal protective equipment for front-line health care workers and respiratory support equipment that aid in the healing of the sick.

Our association is working closely with government departments of health and economic development across Canada to facilitate connections with companies and proactively seek to ensure the continuity of critical areas of the health care supply chain.

Given the necessity to practice social distancing at this time, we have rescheduled Canada’s Regulatory Medtech Conference 2020 from April 2020 to December 7 and 8, 2020 at The Shaw Centre in Ottawa. We have also moved all Medtech Canada committees from in-person meetings to webinars.

The medical technology community is here for Canadians to serve in the best interest of our collective health and safety. We will continue working with our government and health system partners everyday to assist in any way we can to address COVID-19 and maintain the health of Canadians. Please reach out as required during this difficult time. If you have any suggestions to help Canada’s medtech industry contribute to its fullest in managing this difficult situation, please reach out as required—we’re listening.”
