Victoria's Quilts Canada now includes over 1,100 volunteers in Ottawa and in 25 communities across Canada. The quilts are made by individual quilters who work independently, or in groups in a team setting similar to the quilting bees of times past. On average, these volunteers make and distribute more than 480 quilts per month and, over the past fourteen years have delivered over 38,000 to people with cancer across the country.

Our work is generously supported by our corporate sponsors, who help by donating or discounting their products and services, and by making financial grants and donations. Community groups and organizations also support our program through financial contributions to the National Office and to the Branches; however, the major source of our funds, are donations from private individuals, who are often the recipients of our quilts, and their families and friends.
