WI Mask Project

Be a part of WI's Mask Project - assisting healthcare in our province by providing non-medical masks to our hospitals.

Over $60,000 value of masks have been donated to over 50 organizations including senior's homes and hospitals. Ask on how you can be a part.

Did you know? Similar to today's efforts, PEI WI members knit mittens and socks for troops overseas during WWI and WW2.


PEIWI is now making masks for two projects: Health PEI's COVID-19 Response Team for across PEI, and the QEH Foundation. For those seeking WI masks, the handcrafted masks are available for purchase in bulk quantities through the QEH Foundation Website. All proceeds will support the purchase of medical equipment required for the "Ease Back" phase of the QEH COVID-19 response. The mask efforts are the result of volunteer efforts from members of PEI Women's Institute and PEI Mask+Aide.

For more information, and to purchase masks, please visit the QEH Foundation website: Sewists also needed - Please contact the WI office for more information and to receive your Mask Accessory Kit to assist in this great project.
