Canada Goose keeps investing in apparel manufacturing

Canada Goose continues to invest in rebuilding the Canadian apparel manufacturing industry - it has opened its fifth factory, the first in Québec, and has announced setting up of a new raw material and cutting distribution centre in Ontario. The new facilities are in response to the growing global demand for Canada Goose apparel, sold in 37 countries.

The move is a testament to the company's continued commitment to manufacturing its core products in Canada.

Located in Boisbriand, Québec, the 95,000 square-foot factory has already created more than 125 jobs since it opened, and expects to add more than 325 positions by the end of 2018. The factory produces some of the brand's most popular styles from its down-filled fall/winter collections, as well as select pieces from its spring collection, which offer lighter-weight protection from the elements.

Located in Scarborough, Ontario, the new 117,000 square-foot cutting and distribution centre is the company's sixth facility and will house raw materials centrally, helping to drive increased efficiencies and production capacity, as well as spur job creation, within the company's existing manufacturing facilities.

"Nothing makes me prouder than the investment we have made in helping to bring back apparel manufacturing to Canada and the hundreds of jobs we have created here at home," said Dani Reiss, president and CEO, Canada Goose.

"Today, we operate one of the largest manufacturing infrastructures of its kind in Canada and we're honoured to now be making our products in Québec, which has a strong reputation for its skilled talent pool in the garment manufacturing industry," Reiss said.

This expansion is the latest example of the brand's commitment to continue to aggressively invest in the rebuilding of the Canadian manufacturing industry. Over the last five years, Canada Goose has increased the number of cut and sew workers it employs by more than 200 per cent, and is recognised for employing approximately 10 per cent of the entire cut and sew labour force across the country.

"I am very pleased to welcome to Rivière-des-Mille-Îles a business that shines on the international scene. In addition, the new plant in Boisbriand will create many good jobs in our community: that's very good news for us," said Linda Lapointe, Member of Parliament Rivière-des-Mille-Îles.

In 2010, Canada Goose expanded operations with the opening of its first Winnipeg factory, which at that time was the company's second manufacturing facility. In 2015, the company expanded both the factory and office spaces in its global headquarters in Toronto, as well as opened two more facilities - in Scarborough and a second Winnipeg location. (SV)
