The Quebec Provincial Government announced that 300 Thousand Protective Visors would be purchased for healthcare works. These protective visors are being designed, manufactured and shipped by Bauer. This Hockey Equipment manufacturer is known for supplying an entire industry with the required gear to play their sport. Alterations in production were made when Covid-19 became a pandemic across North America. Bauer has begun shipping these mask internationally, which are assisting hundreds of thousands from liming their exposure to Covid-19.

These 300 thousand protective visors are being manufactured at the Blainville Facility, which is located within the province of Quebec. The government greenlit its request to alter the production line for Covid-19 Relief Assistance. Social service workers will also be provided with these masks in Quebec, ensuring that the elderly and in-need receive their required assistance. Production of these masks will begin on April 1st, with fifteen thousand being sent by April 7th. It’ll mark one of the fastest changes to a production line in manufacturing history.

The Health Minister for Quebec, Danielle McCann, provided a formal statement on this announcement. She mentioned that by collaborating with Bauer, it’d better enable the Quebec government to meet the short-term demands of medical workers. Ensuring the supplying of protection tools, which will be essential in the coming months, has become significant for Quebec-born politicians. It should be noted that requests to alter production lines were made on March 25th. Approval was provided 48 hours later. Bauer has also changed production lines in New York State, assisting medical professionals across America.

The Vice President of Production Innovation with Bauer, Dan Bourgeois, spoke of behalf of his company. It was expressed that their decision was inspired by the Quebec Premier, who urged local manufacturers to assist the province with medical supplies. The New York Governor also made similar requests. Profits earned from the manufacturing and shipping of protective visors will be minimal for Bauer, with a 5% return expected. This shows that certain corporations can provide relief and aid during critical moments in human history.

There have been over 6000 confirmed cases of the novel coronavirus in Canada. It’s become a substantial pandemic with 86 citizens dying from the influenza-like virus. However, 500+ people have recovered from Covid-19, with many more expected to come.
