Saskatchewan Sending 100 Ventilators To Assist India In Fight Against COVID-19

Released on May 3, 2021

Today, the Government of Saskatchewan announced it is sending 100 ventilators to India to assist the country as they manage a major surge and the highest active COVID-19 case count seen worldwide during the global pandemic.

"Saskatchewan has a close and growing friendship with India, so it is incumbent on us to assist them where we can during this challenging time in their country," Premier Scott Moe said.  "With an excess supply of ventilators in Saskatchewan, we are well positioned to provide this humanitarian support to India during a time of great need."

Saskatchewan has maintained an excess supply of ventilators to support patients in the province.  The current supply includes over 700 critical care, subacute, and non-invasive ventilators.  The 100 ventilators being sent includes 30 critical care and 70 subacute ventilators.  Following the shipment to India, Saskatchewan will maintain an excess supply of more than 600 critical care, subacute and non-invasive ventilators.

The Government of Saskatchewan will work with Saskatchewan's trade officials and the Indian High Commission in Canada to ship the ventilators to India in a timely and secure manner.  Saskatchewan will continue to work with other provincial partners to look at further opportunities to support India.
