In these uncertain times, there are people out there doing what they can to help.

Canada Goose has committed two of its manufacturing facilities to the cause - one in Toronto and another in Winnipeg - with approximately 100 employees dedicated to the project. Canada Goose is the latest company to offer its services to workers on the frontlines.

It has said it may extend production to additional facilities as needed. The initial goal is to produce 10,000 units of scrubs and patient gowns, which are in short supply across the country.
