Luxury outerwear brand Canada Goose will open its second factory in Quebec and eighth wholly owned manufacturing facility in Canada in Montreal next month.
Located in the Chabanel area of the city, the 115,000 sq ft factory will be operational and employ more than 100 people by the end of March. This will increase to 650 people when it reaches full capacity by the end of 2020.
“We continue to raise the bar for what it means to be a leader in Canadian apparel manufacturing. We are not just opening offices or putting up a masthead – we are helping to rebuild the cut-and-sew industry here by creating meaningful new careers for hundreds of people,” said Dani Reiss, president and CEO of Canada Goose.
In the last four years, Canada Goose has expanded its manufacturing footprint to include three sites in Winnipeg, three in the Greater Toronto Area, and one in Boisbriand, Quebec. Canada Goose employs approximately 20% of the cut-and-sew labour force across Canada and has more than doubled the number of manufacturing workers it employs since 2017.
