Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau announced on Friday that American vaccine maker Moderna plans to set up its promised Canadian biomanufacturing plant in Montreal.
Alongside the prime minister, attendees also included the Minister of Innovation, Science and Industry François-Philippe Champagne, Minister of Health Jean-Yves Duclos, Quebec Premier François Legault, Moderna CEO Stéphane Bancel, and Moderna Canada General Manager Patricia Gauthier.
A source close to Legault confirmed earlier this week that Montreal was selected as the location for the company’s Canadian mRNA vaccine-manufacturing facility.
Bancel said he believed the new facility would allow Canada to be ready for the next virus.
