A Made-in-Canada Solution to COVID-19 Testing

Canada HealthLabs (CHL) is committed to the fight against the COVID-19 pandemic - and future viral threats - through made-in-Canada research and testing solutions that help keep Canadians safe and the economy moving.

CHL is filling Canada's current gap in pandemic testing capacity through a Canada-wide network of new labs performing COVID-19 diagnostic testing. This will give Canadians the green light to keep working and go about their daily business. This innovative approach is supported by Canadian business leaders, who share the goal of keeping the economy open.

CHL is also providing a national platform for the evaluation and deployment of novel tests and technologies, while providing impartial, data-driven research.

Each CHL laboratory is affiliated with a local university, modeled after the successful launch of McMaster HealthLabs.
