Prime Minister Justin Trudeau says Canada will eventually be able to manufacture COVID-19 vaccines
Published: 2021-02-02 12:25 pm

The prime minister said Canada needs as much domestic capacity for vaccine production as soon as possible because with new variants they don’t know what the future looks like a year or two from now.

Trudeau said two companies - Precision NanoSystems and Novavax - will eventually manufacture vaccines in Canada.

He said they have signed a memorandum of understanding with Maryland-based Novavax and pending Health Canada approval, tens of millions of Novavax COVID-19 doses will be made in Canada.

He also said Vancouver-based Precision NanoSystems will also build a manufacturing facility capable of manufacturing up to 240 million doses of vaccine per year.
