KITCHENER, ON, December 11, 2020 — Supply+Protect, an online marketplace with a focus on Canadian manufactured personal protective equipment (PPE) for small and medium businesses across Canada, has merged with not-for-profit PPE Access Canada to support the safety of all businesses. With this merger, Supply+Protect will be a designated not-for-profit organization. 

Finding trusted, cost-effective PPE continues to be an issue for businesses of all sizes from all over the country. With this merger, two leading platforms have now joined forces as one cohesive not-for-profit platform that will make PPE purchases easier for all types of businesses both public and private.

“Supply+Protect was founded so that businesses across Canada had a trusted partner to help them navigate the new normal of PPE purchasing and this merger only increases the amount of support that we are able to provide,” said CEO, Amber French. “One platform now does it all: supports our amazing Canadian manufacturers, while making it easy for businesses to find and purchase top quality, local, vetted supplies. Additionally, by merging PPE Access Canada onto the platform, our manufacturing partners can offer even better options and special pricing to our at-risk community frontline workers, charities and regional agencies, such as fire, police and EMS.”​ 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 partners added to the platform each week. 

“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.” 

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 carries a broad scope of PPE and COVID-business solutions, from traditional PPE items such as masks, gloves and sanitizer, to items such as barriers, floor decals and air purification systems. Purchases made through the site are automated to the various manufacturers to be fulfilled. 

“Supply+Protect is an important way for the private sector to support Canada’s local manufacturing sector,” says French. “The ability for businesses to buy local, quality products will help sustain Canada’s new PPE supply chains.”
