A Canadian clothing brand has unveiled a T-shirt honouring the country’s top female doctors and their collective efforts against the COVID-19 pandemic.

The “Our Moment in Time” shirt was created by Silver Icing, a Vancouver-based clothing and lifestyle brand. The tee “was created as a shout out to seven women doctors who emerged early as part of the leading authority guiding the Canadian people through this pandemic,” reads the company website.

“During this defining moment in time, these trailblazing females are creating a space that will help shape the future of our country and the world around us.”

The T-shirt comes in several colours and is available in adult and youth sizes. The last names of the following doctors are printed on the shirt:

  • Dr. Theresa Tam, Chief Public Health Officer of Canada
  • Dr. Bonnie Henry, BC Provincial Health Officer
  • Dr. Deena Hinshaw, Alberta Chief Medical Officer
  • Dr. Eileen de Villa, Toronto Medical Officer of Health
  • Dr. Jennifer Russell, New Brunswick Chief Medical Officer
  • Dr. Heather Morrison, PEI Chief Medical Officer
  • Dr. Kami Kandola, Northwest Territories Chief Public Health Officer

The company says that 100% of net proceeds are being donated to Conquer COVID-19, a grassroots organization helping source personal protective equipment (PPE) for frontline workers.

Pre-orders for the shirt opened on Friday, April 17, and as of Monday, the company says more than $32,000 has been raised.
