Ontario Premier Doug Ford is set to make an announcement on Monday afternoon at Queen’s Park.

Ford will be joined by Attorney General Doug Downey, Solicitor General Sylvia Jones and Associate Minister of Children and Women’s Issues Jill Dunlop.

On Friday, the premier and Prime Minister Justin Trudeau announced a partnership to have 50 million masks made annually in 3M Canada’s Brockville facility, over the course of five years.

Both levels of government are investing $23.33 million to support 3M’s capital investment of $70 million.

According to the province, the expanded facility will produce enough respirators to meet private sector, provincial, and North American market demand throughout the pandemic and beyond.

The press briefing will be held at 1 pm.
