Who We Are
Masks and More is a Hamilton-based online community marketplace for masks and other personal protective equipment (PPE) to be used by residents and organizations, with a particular focus on essential workers in healthcare, long-term care homes, grocery store employees, pharmacies, homeless shelters and other vulnerable groups.
Our mission is to support the production and distribution of Canadian-made PPE by linking manufacturers to people and organizations. We encourage manufacturers to offer high-quality PPE at a fair market price. We do this by encouraging the honest posting of third-party test results on our marketplace and by only authorizing manufacturers whose products meet our quality and pricing guidelines. We cannot guarantee the authenticity of products. Certified PPE will currently be reserved for frontline workers in priority areas.
Masks and More is linked to McMaster University’s Masks@Mac initiative, a group of more than 100 McMaster researchers who have been actively working with regional manufacturers that are pivoting in the wake of COVID-19 to make PPE.
Our website hosts a marketplace of PPE supplied by approved manufacturers whose products meet our quality and pricing guidelines. Those in need of PPE are invited to create an account with us and, once approved, can purchase products in quantities based on their individual needs.
