We Give Back

In 2017, we faced a tough decision: use our first order of masks to launch our company or give them away to victims of the British Columbia forest fires. We gave them away. Today, we continue to donate masks to help those in need.

Our Story

During their trip to Asia, Peter and Rich experienced the effects of pollution. They suffered dry throats, wheezing, and coughing—the bad air quality shocked them. They realized that millions of people around the world breathe this kind of air every day. And, to make matters worse, these people lack effective respiratory protection. When returning to Canada, they grew a new appreciation for their home's clean air. After reflecting on their journey, they believed everyone deserved clean air. O2 Canada was born.

Our Team

Over the past several years, our two-man startup in Waterloo, Canada has grown into a global, nimble team. We share a desire to make a difference in people's lives and a passion to improve air quality around the world. Meet the team.
