Bruce Power has launched an online portal to provide local municipalities, businesses and community organizations with access to affordable personal protective equipment (PPE).

In a July 27 media release from Bruce Power, the Retooling and Economic Recovery Council (RERC) has begun taking orders for PPE through to assist in the fight against COVID-19.

Organizations who had submitted orders in advance are now being asked to place their orders through the portal. Orders will be taken within two intake windows: July 27 to August 14 and September 21 to October 3.

“As we’ve entered Stage 3 of reopening across most of Ontario, a primary focus of the Retooling and Economic Recovery Council is making sure our businesses and non-profit organizations have the protective equipment they need to serve their customers and protect the health and safety of our communities,” said James Scongack, Executive Vice-President of Corporate Affairs and Operational Services at Bruce Power who co-chairs RERC along with Richard Horrobin, Bruce Power’s Vice-President and Managing Director, Supply Chain.

“We’re very grateful to Levitt-Safety and Canadian Bearings Ltd. for stepping forward and providing PPE to our Strength in Numbers program, and to the Ontario Chamber of Commerce for making small and medium businesses across the province aware of this initiative.”
