Supply+Protect is a one-stop shopping platform for Canadian PPE manufacturers, to help businesses across the nation return to work safely 


KITCHENER, 10/20/2020 ​- ​Finding trusted, cost-effective personal protective equipment (PPE) continues to be an issue for businesses of all sizes across the country. ​Supply+Protect ​― an online marketplace with a focus on Canadian​  manufactured PPE ​― today announces its launch. Supply+Protect is an accredited source for all businesses to get everything they need to re-open safely and mitigate the spread of COVID-19. 

“I am incredibly excited about this company​,​” says David Chilton, ​The Wealthy Barber​ and former Dragon on CBC’s ​Dragons’ Den​. “There is an obvious need for a convenient and cost-effective platform to purchase vetted personal protective equipment and an even greater need for a trustworthy source in this all-important area. And that is exactly what Supply+Protect offers​.​” is a one-stop-shop allowing businesses to buy what they need​  from pre-vetted vendors, all while supporting the Canadian economy. With the platform representing dozens of Canadian brands, PPE buyers and vendors can now purchase quality products that they can trust. ​Supply+Protect filters out counterfeit and substandard products by requiring insurance, licenses to sell, and product certifications for every item sold on the platform.​ Manufacturers and distributors, such as Hunter Amenities and Canadian Shield, are a few of the many trusted sources now accessible, with more being added to the platform each week. 

“Supply+Protect ​will give our vendors access to more customers and more reach through cross-product marketing and education,​” ​says Amber French, a Waterloo Region tech and social entrepreneur and CEO of Supply+Protect. ​“​Our heavy emphasis on Canadian manufacturers helps ensure that our national supply chain remains sustainable​.​

Businesses no longer have to navigate between multiple websites to find what they need, ​saving time and money. ​Pricing efficiencies are created by a buyer’s ability to compare numerous vendors simultaneously. Supply+Protect also offers preferred pricing for larger volume order customers and customizable products for all businesses, including branded cloth masks and sanitizer bottles.
