Regional PPE and Critical Supplies Table

Ontario Health has established the Regional Supply Chain Table to support the distribution of Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) and critical supplies across the Province. A focus for this North Region PPE and Critical Supplies Table is the gathering, managing, and escalation of PPE and other critical supplies. 

How to Escalate

If your organization has less than 14 days supply of PPE and you are not able to obtain the supplies through normal or alternate processes, then you can begin escalating to the Regional Table/Northern Supply Chain.

In order to escalate your organization’s needs you will need to calculate your burn rate. CDC Burn Rate Calculator
