In addition to the previously introduced One Mask at a Time Project, NunatuKavut Community Council (NCC) has a limited supply of Stormtech masks with the NCC logo. These masks have been made available to resident members throughout various initiatives such as mail-outs, as well as accompanying food hampers. For non-resident NCC members, the mask can be mailed to you upon request.

One Mask at at Time Project
NCC is leading a project called “One Mask a Time,” which supplies crafters with materials to make masks for NunatuKavut members and communities. These masks, which are provided free of charge, is part of ongoing initiatives we are undertaking to help stop the spread of COVID-19 in our communities.
Our sincere appreciation to the Iron Ore Company of Canada/ Compagnie minière IOC (Rio Tinto) for their generous contribution toward this project for NunatuKavut members, as well as Indigenous peoples living in Labrador West. We also appreciate our partnerships with groups like Cloth Masks for Labrador and the Labrador Friendship Centre.
This project is being coordinated through the Labrador West Indigenous Service Centre. If you have any questions, please contact Sherry Penney at 709-280-3061.
