Everyone has their favourites brands which are strategically chosen for various reasons which can be directly related to the style of the products, the materials used or even their origin. More and more brands are choosing to use domestically sourced materials and fabrics in order to contribute to the growth of their country’s economy and eliminate any unnecessary pollutants.

Why Choose Canadian-Made Brands?

Choosing to produce with domestically sourced materials and fabrics is not only beneficial to the growth of a country’s economy, but for the environment as well. When you choose to use materials and fabrics that are made within your country, they do not have to travel long distances to be used for production. This eliminates unnecessary travel expenses and reduces the carbon footprint made by a particular company. If you think of how many materials and fabrics are shipped daily and transported by planes and trucks and other modes of transportation, the carbon footprint becomes quite large.

For this, we are proud to carry a wide selection of brands that are produced right here in Canada and made with domestically sourced materials and fabrics. The brands include a variety of products but with the approaching winter, we are focusing on the brands carrying winter coats so those still searching for the ideal winter coat can choose a Canadian-made coat this season.

  1. Hello, this article helped me identify Canadian made brands out of the several brands worldwide. Unfortunately, after purchasing a down jacket from Soia & Kyo, the tag on the jacket says it is Made in China. I researched the brand and through reviews found out the products are only designed in Canada but is manufactured in China. I also believe in supporting the country’s economy and relying on domestically sourced materials. Seems several customers had the same issue with their quality and false advertisement of production. I would suggest removing Soia & Kyo from the list since aside from their quality issues, they do not meet the Canada made criteria.

    1. Hi Nikki, if you read through the article, there are two sections, section one being “Brands We Carry that Are Made in Canada” (Canada Goose, Quartz Co., Auvik and Kanuk) and section two being “Shop Other Canadian Brands We Carry.” It’s simply to show that there are additional brands that we carry that have their roots in Canada although may not be made here in Canada.

  2. This is a very misleading article. “Canadian made” is not the same as “Canadian brands”. I’m a Canadian living in Europe and the differences in fashion are very stark. Of all these brands you listed, not all of them are “canadian made”. “Canadian made” means manufactured by local artisans. I find it incredulous that someone would pay CAD$ 1K for some “brand” who then cheaps out on the labor and offshores production to China and pocket the profits. Canada Goose does manufacture in Canada. However, Noobis certainly doesn’t. Same with MacKage is so so. If it’s manufactured in Canada you won’t have to do much research to find out. It’ll be slapped on the label as Canada Goose does.

    1. Hi Omeir, if you have a look, the article is divided into two section with one being brands with their products made in Canada and the other being Canadian brands so brands that have their roots in Canada but may be manufactured elsewhere. If you notice, the brands that fall under the brands with products made in Canada, you will find Canada Goose, Quartz Co., Audvik, and Kanuk.

    1. Hello Mario, unfortunately with domestic-made products, the resources are limited and because of that, there are higher costs to create the garments.

  3. A lot of these brands don’t actually make their products in Canada. This article is misleading for someone looking specifically for this feature.

    1. Hello Brooke, thanks for your comment! We are aware that all these brands are Candian but you are correct not all are actually made here in Canada. The article has been updated so that the three made here in Canada appear first and the others are under a different title stating that they are Canadian brands, not Canadian made.

  4. Has anyone heard of or know where I can source a brand called museum, I understand it’s a Canadian brand and I saw it in lake garda Italy, but I cannot find it anywhere not even a website!
