PROTECTING OUR PEOPLE PROGRAM
The Protecting Our People program – offered to the agriculture, seafood and processing sectors across Canada - provides affordable access to Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) that is available to be purchased online through a simple ordering system.
Order fulfilment, shipping, customer service and payment will be managed through our partner Evolution Fulfillment, and funding support in the form of a repayable loan to make this program possible was provided by the Investment Agriculture Foundation of BC (IAFBC).

What is the timeline for delivery?
All items listed are in inventory and available to be purchased immediately and can be shipped in just a few days.
How do I know the product is of good quality?
BCFB has procured PPE from reliable, established suppliers with MDEL certification who have demonstrated their ability to provide quality supplies at competitive prices, as well as the ability to physically inspect orders at the manufacturers and again when arriving in BC. All products have FDA certifications and have been put through a Health Canada review to ensure that the supplies are of an appropriate standard for our industry.
For Agriculture and food production, it is strongly recommended to only use masks that are tested and proven to be 95% BFE or better. Our Level One masks have been tested and meet the 95% PFE standard. All product certifications are available to view online on the ordering system.
What is the cost of the PPE?
Disposable masks are available for as little as $0.80 per mask, which come in boxes of 50
KN95 masks are only $3.35 per mask, which comes in boxes of 10
Nitrile gloves come in Small, Medium and Large sizes and are only $0.50 per pair, which come in boxes of 100
I'm a small business and don't need to buy a lot - do you have high minimums?
We’ve established low order minimums to ensure that small businesses and farms will be able to order smaller quantities at competitive prices. The Protecting Our People program will be available until there is enough available supply of PPE for industry to source on their own.
