NEW* Important Request to HSCN Members
We have been asked by the Ontario Government to strongly urge all our members to register on the website www.ontario.ca/ontariotogether – including those member companies who may feel that their products and services are already “known” to the Ontario Government.
Submissions to the website are being taken seriously, are being triaged quickly, and provide critically important insights to the Ontario Government on what our companies can do to help fight COVID-19 right now – whether that’s as straightforward as being a supplier of critical medical devices specifically related to COVID-19, or its innovative ideas, solutions or products that help support the fight against COVID-19 (such as technologies that can care for patients at home and keep them out of hospital, services that can help with hospital efficiencies, etc.)
Please don’t take for granted that the government is aware of your products and services. There are many moving parts to the fight against COVID-19 and this is the best way to streamline information and ensure that no possible technology solution or services is being overlooked at this time.
To register your company and your ideas/products/services – please click on the link below. For further context, please see this letter from the Hon. Vic Fedeli, Minister of Economic Development, Job Creation and Trade in Ontario.
If you have any questions, please contact email@example.com.
