Noranda Income Fund has entered into a partnership to finance a mobile vaccination clinic.

Once in place, the mobile vaccination clinic will be able to administer nearly 180 vaccine doses per day.

Liana Centomo, CEO of Canadian Electrolytic Zinc Limited and manager of the Noranda Income Fund, commented,

“Since the onset of the pandemic, everyone at the facility has worked tirelessly to ensure the health and safety of our employees, and our people have continued to accomplish remarkable work in challenging circumstances.

“The opportunity to support mass vaccination efforts is perfectly aligned with our role as a longstanding and engaged member of the local community and I am proud of our team’s leadership in this regard.

“We also remain committed to maintaining our operational discipline and our strict onsite COVID-19 protocols as vaccination efforts roll out,” she added.

Vaccination is expected to begin in May. The vaccine will be available, free of charge, to all Canadian Electrolytic Zinc employees, their immediate families, and the community at large.

Noranda Income Fund owns the electrolytic zinc processing facility located in Salaberry-de-Valleyfield, Quebec. The processing facility is operated and managed by Canadian Electrolytic Zinc Limited, a wholly-owned subsidiary of Glencore Canada Corporation.

Noranda Income Fund (NIF.UN) is up 0.93 per cent and is trading at $1.09 per share as of 12:02 pm ET.
