The Canadian Shield is helping to establish a new association on national standards on medical mask manufacturing.
The Waterloo-based company, along with Breathe Medical Manufacturing in Kelowna, BC, have co-founded The Canadian Association of Medical Mask Manufacturers, or CAMMM.
In a release, it's said the intent is to support government and industry in "establishing standards and regulations for this newly formed Canadian industry," and to also help economic health of the industry.
"On behalf of The Canadian Shield and its employees and suppliers, we're pleased to be joining Breathe Medical as a founding member of CAMMM, and we look forward to building a strong industry," said Jeremy Hedges, CEO of The Canadian Shield.
"Everyone in the Canadian industry is highly focused on achieving safety and security for Canadians in many different walks of life and industries, and an industry association is a key avenue for all of us to work cooperatively with governments and industry to reach those important goals."
The release indicated CAMMM will be working with stakeholders and government in the coming months.
