It's been a few months since Canada's chief public health officer announced that wearing non-medical masks can help limit the transmission of COVID-19. We enlisted sewing expert and YouTuber withwendy to show us how to make them, and we've shared some no-sew tutorials too. But purchasing them online is also an option (especially for those without sewing machines or more t-shirts to cut up). 

Below is a list of online retailers that offer shipping within Canada, whose products are described as having "at least two layers of tightly woven material fabric" and ties or ear loops, as per the Public Health Agency of Canada guidelines for appropriate use of non-medical masks and face coverings. It's important to heed the full guidelines when selecting or evaluating your mask.
