Under the leadership of Health Minister Patty Hajdu, Canada’s Department of Health purchased over $1 billion worth of ventilators to help care for those suffering from respiratory problems as a result of being infected with Covid-19. The government has since admitted that they may have overestimated the amount needed, and have moved the vast majority to a warehouse for storage.

According to Public Services and Procurement Canada, of the 40,000 ventilators ordered by the Trudeau Liberals at the beginning of the pandemic, 27,706 have been delivered as of April 2022.
