Innomar Strategies Reaches Agreement with the Government of Canada to Support COVID-19 Vaccine Distribution 

December 7, 2020

OAKVILLE, Ontario – Innomar Strategies, a part of AmerisourceBergen, has reached an agreement with the Government of Canada to support the distribution of COVID-19 vaccines across Canada. The agreement was announced today by the Honourable Anita Anand, Minister of Public Services and Procurement and the Honourable Patty Hajdu, Minister of Health.

As part of the agreement, Innomar will work with FedEx Express Canada to provide an end-to-end logistics solution that protects product viability throughout transport and enables safe and timely vaccine administration in each province and territory. To support access, Innomar will provide third-party logistics (3PL) and importation services, including scalable storage solutions, to accommodate distribution efforts. Innomar will use its GMP-compliant facilities to safely and securely store and handle COVID-19 vaccines. The storage facilities—which are equipped to store complex pharmaceutical products, including those with cold chain requirements—are temperature-mapped and have a validated monitoring system to protect against temperature excursions.

“As the leading patient support provider in the Canadian specialty pharmaceutical market, Innomar has been working throughout the COVID-19 pandemic to continuously ensure patient access to the medications they need,” said Guy Payette, president of Innomar Strategies. “This agreement is another extension of the role we play in improving product access and increasing supply chain efficiency in Canada. We are honored to work with FedEx and the Government of Canada to help ensure patients receive timely access to a COVID-19 vaccine.”
