Mississauga, ON – Alectra is contributing $35,000 to help establish Canada’s largest vaccination centre in the heart of Peel Region. Located at the CAA Centre in Brampton, the mass vaccination clinic is now open to all Peel residents aged 18+ through June 2021.

The clinic will be using the ‘Hockey Hub’ model in an NHL-sized rink with capacity to vaccinate up to 10,000 people per day, or 250,000 over the course of four weeks. 

Alectra joined a coalition of organizations – including Bruce Power, Nordion, the Power Workers’ Union, Framatome, Kinectrics, SNC-Lavalin, NPX, CGI Inc., LiUNA, BWXT, E.S. Fox, EnergySolutions, the Provincial Building and Construction Trades Council of Ontario, and the Ontario Chamber of Commerce Vaccination Support Council – who are supporting the set-up and operation of the centre to administer vaccines across this high-risk region.

“Peel has been one of the hardest hit regions that we serve and Alectra is committed to providing support in an effort to protect our communities in every way we can,” said Brian Bentz, President and CEO, Alectra Inc. “We’re proud to be a partner in this initiative and know that increasing the access to vaccines will be vital in reducing COVID-19 cases.”

Throughout the pandemic, Alectra has continued to support communities through the AlectraCARES program that saw donations of PPE and specialized equipment to hospitals across the GTHA to mitigate shortages for frontline workers.

“We know that access to vaccines for all residents across Peel Region is crucial in our fight against COVID-19 and Alectra is in full support of coming together with other community partners to accelerate the distribution process in Ontario,” said Mr. Bentz.

The Peel Region Hockey Hub at the CAA Centre in Brampton is now open to the public, and residents 18+ can book their appointment through the Peel Public Health booking system or the provincial online booking portal:
