First Defence is projecting 150 new jobs and an economic benefit of over $7.5 million dollars in new salaries by the end of 2021. This growth is due to the support from local healthcare organizations and businesses making the switch from imported to Canadian-made products, as well as the use of Canadian raw materials to produce the masks.
