TC Transcontinental (TCL.A) has announced that it will offer vaccination to TC employees, their families, and local residents.

The vaccination centre, opened in response to the Québec government's call for businesses to support its COVID-19 vaccination campaign, will begin vaccinating at the end of May.

The vaccination centre will be located at the company’s distribution centre in Montréal’s Rivière-des-Prairies–Pointe-aux-Trembles neighbourhood.

François Olivier, President and CEO of TC Transcontinental, commented,

"We were very enthusiastic about participating in the collective vaccination effort when the call to businesses went out to support the Quebec government and public health authorities."

He added,

"This mobilization is part of our campaign to raise awareness of the importance of vaccination among our employees and is in addition to the measures put in place in TC Transcontinental facilities across Québec, Canada, the United States and Latin America to fight the COVID-19 pandemic.

As a responsible corporate citizen and a major player in economic development, in addition to contributing to the community, we have a duty to play a major role in protecting our employees, our organization and our activities."

The project office set up by TC Transcontinental will be responsible for the logistics of organizing and running the vaccination centre.

The company also intends to collaborate with other players and organizations in the east end of Montréal and will recruit volunteers among its employees to mobilize further and give back to the local community.

TC Transcontinental is a leader in flexible packaging in North America, and Canada’s largest printer.

TC Transcontinental (TCL.A) is down 0.73 per cent and is trading at $22.98 per share as of 1:49 pm ET.
