High-tech company CAE has opened its COVID-19 Vaccination Centre.

The vaccination hub, located at CAE’s headquarters in the St-Laurent borough is providing vaccines to its employees and their families, as well as the surrounding community.

CAE has committed to vaccinating a minimum of 15,000 to 25,000 people in the province from April to August 2021, following the public health’s order of priority for vaccination.

CAE’s President and Chief Executive Officer Marc Parent explained that this is the first workplace vaccination centre in Quebec to support the government during this mass roll-out with extra resources and to reduce pressure on the healthcare system.

“This is a collective effort that will help save lives, allow for a faster economic recovery and a safe return to normal life. I would like to extend my sincere gratitude to the CIUSSS du Nord-de-l’Île-de-Montréal and Quebec’s Ministry of Health and Social Services staff for their collaboration and support throughout the process.”

Over the past few months, many companies have offered their support at their own cost and have committed to an ambitious goal of vaccinating up to 500,000 people in the province of Quebec.

CAE played a pivotal role by initiating mobilization efforts so that these large companies can participate in the vaccination dissemination across these 23 workplace vaccination hubs, which have been announced across the province.

Frédéric Abergel, President and Chief Executive Officer of CIUSSS du Nord-de-l’Île-de-Montréal, hailed this united effort to help save lives, allow for economic recovery and a return to normal life.

“Being where the people of our territory are, means being anchored in their community, which is one of our four organizational priorities. By offering vaccination in the workplace in partnership with CAE, we are responding to this objective.”

He added that it is with collaborative initiatives like this that, “We will succeed in vaccinating our entire population quickly and effectively.”

CAE Inc. is a global company focused on delivering training for the civil aviation, defence, security, and healthcare markets.

CAE Inc. is down 0.467 per cent, trading at C$38.35 per share at 11 am ET.
