In Ontario, the Federal and provincial governments announced that a new influenza vaccine facility will be built in Toronto to help bolster Canada’s biomanufacturing capacity. Innovation Minister Francois-Philippe Champagne said the federal government will spend $415 million in partnership with Sanofi Pasteur Ltd. and the Ontario government to build the new facility by 2027. The federal government said the new facility will have the ability to produce enough vaccine doses to support the entire Canadian population within about six months of the World Health Organization identifying a pandemic flu strain. Ontario Premier Doug Ford said his government will contribute $55 million to the project and Sanofi will provide more than $455 million. The project will create 1,225 jobs and Sanofi will also invest at least $79 million a year to fund Canadian research and development. The new facility’s work will include drug product formulation, fill-and-finish and inspection of flu vaccines.
