"Canada will donate the equivalent of at least 200 million doses to the COVAX Facility by the end of 2022," Prime Minister Justin Trudeau said in a statement, referring to the global vaccine-sharing alliance.
Those funds should contribute to the creation of a "technology transfer center" so that the region can produce messenger RNA vaccines against Covid-19.
"We do not control production, but by 2022, we are certain that it will be possible to contribute at this level," Freeland said.
According to the Canadian government, fewer than three million of the 40 million doses already promised by Canada had been received by the COVAX program on Saturday, with additional deliveries planned in coming days.
