Start of a mask production project

Démarrage d'un projet de production de masques

Community Preventive Masks

As you know, we are currently working on the research and development (R&D), design, certification and production of various masks, including COMMUNITY PREVENTION masks (for the general public and health professionals) + BARRIERS masks.

The production of the COMMUNITY PREVENTION masks is in progress, we are able to produce 5-10,000 per week to start with our incredible network (it's FOU the spirit of solidarity for this national project and ...!) and we have a very solid business partner in Beauce, Confection C.Cliche.

Partners in the health field

We work with our partners CISSS de la Gaspésie, Femmessor, Government of Quebec, Institut de recherche Robert-Sauvé en santé et en sécurité du travail (IRSST) and its university partner, Concordia University. The IRSST is the recognized partner for informing manufacturers or suppliers of medical supplies of international standards.

Information on our masks

The masks are made of cotton and are washable and reusable (the data sheet will follow shortly).

Cotton is preferred for comfort and breathability. Pay attention to the different fabrics offered on the Internet.

We are going to propose tutorials and each mask will have a clear indication sheet for the washing protocol and maintenance. 

Each customer will have to commit himself to respect the rules of hygiene before wearing it. We will also put a pattern (approved and tested) online if you want to make some for yourself.

Important message from the Ministry of Health and Social Services

Let us repeat what the Direction générale de la santé publique du ministère de la Santé et des Services sociaux du Québec has been telling us since the beginning of the crisis.

  • Masks are not an effective "protection" tool for the general population. They are PREVENTIVE masks, for short periods of time, to protect others from yourself (if you are sick, cough, etc.).
  • Their use is rather indicated as "preventive" for patients in whom an infection is suspected as well as for the health professionals who care for them.
  • Follow the protocol of washing your hands 20 seconds before putting on the mask, and wash your hands immediately afterwards.
  • Do not touch the mask
  • Do not put your hands in your mouth and nose.
  • Apply social distancing barriers of two meters and not to go out unnecessarily

The first set of COMMUNITY PREVENTIVE masks should be released next week. We need to get them washed, packed for delivery and prepare the logistics around this great traffic!  We are preparing our website to receive the tsunami of requests and make sure everything is professional.

Thank you for your kind words, your patience, your encouragement, we really feel supported!
