Dear First Nations and First Nation Schools,

We hope that everyone is keeping well.

During the summer, FNESC and FNSA shared information about how eligible organizations, including First Nation schools, are able to purchase PPE and cleaning supplies through the provincial government COVID-19 Supply Hub. See the original August 19th notice including information on purchasing PPE here.

According to the Province, additional inventory is now available through the Supply Hub. In addition to the items previously available (gloves, gowns, goggles, industrial cleaners, disinfectant cleaners, bleach, hand sanitizers, level 1 surgical masks and disinfectant wipes), the Supply Hub has recently added a significant inventory of the following products: 

  • NIOSH Approved N95 Particulate Respirator
  • 946ml Disinfectant Cleaner
  • XL Nitrile Gloves
  • Trigger Sprayers – compatible with 946ml Disinfectant Cleaner and 355 ml Liquid Hand Sanitizer

To order, go to the COVID-19 Supply Hub at http://www.gov.bc.ca/supplyhub. See the Product Catalogue for product details.

With its expanded inventory, the Supply Hub has removed the 30-day supply limitation and is now able to fulfill larger orders.

If you have questions about ordering PPE or cleaning supplies, please email COVID19request@gov.bc.ca
