Find a wig

When you’re facing cancer and the challenges that come with it, it can be difficult to adjust to changes like hair loss. We help women living with cancer find wigs when they lose their hair as a result of cancer treatment.

Since 2007, through our partnership with Proctor & Gamble Canada and the launch of the Pantene Beautiful Lengths campaign, over 1,900 wigs have been created, donated and distributed to women all across Canada. We encourage Canadians to donate their hair to create real-hair wigs for women who are undergoing cancer treatment. Learn how to donate your hair.

The Canadian Cancer Society has wig rooms in various community offices across the country and supplies a number of cancer centres. Here, women can browse a selection of real-hair wigs, try them on and see if there is a wig that is suitable. Many wigs are donated back to us when women are finished their cancer treatments.

Read about a Winnipeg woman whose search for a real-hair wig inspired the Society to expand its offerings in her province. Learn more about the generosity of wood-turners who transformed a historical tree into beautiful wig stands that they donated to the Society.

To find a wig room close to you contact your local Society office or call an information specialist at 1-888-939-3333.  

Manitobans experiencing cancer related hair loss can borrow wigs and other head-coverings free of charge through The Guardian Angel Caring Room located at 675 McDermot Ave. All wigs are cleaned and sanitized before being loaned out. Contact Beverley Naleway at 204-787-4180 to arrange an appointment.



Rebecca and James Hamm It was very important that the fundraiser be in honour of my uncle, because it’s a great way to show our support for him.
