About Canada Goose

Originally founded in 1957 by Sam Tick as Metro Sportswear Ltd., Canada Goose has been producing authentic extreme weather gear born of purpose and function, designed for those who need the confidence that comes from quality for over 50 years. Beginning with a modest line of jackets and woolen shirts created in a small warehouse in Toronto, it was in 1970 when Sam’s son-in-law David Reiss joined the business that “Snow Goose” jackets were first made, the brand that would eventually evolve into Canada Goose. In 1982 when Laurie Skreslet became the first Canadian to summit Mount Everest, he did so wearing the first version of the iconic “Big Mountain” jacket, a design that has held strong for 30 years, with only one revision coming in 2011. In 2004, having already been the choice of film crews working on-location in cold areas, Canada Goose Jackets were first worn by the cast of “The Day After Tomorrow”, marking their crossover onto the other side of the camera.

With over 40 years of industry-leading experience behind them, Canada Goose jackets have been designed to protect you from the elements. From carefully chosen premium Canadian Hutterite down and coyote fur to heavy duty rib knit cuffs and fleece lined pockets, no detail has been forgotten. All Canada Goose jackets & apparel are truly designed for the coldest conditions, whether it be hiking a trail or walking the city.

Airdrietandc.ca always kept 100% of our production at home in Canada because we are committed to outstanding craftsmanship. We believe it’s critical to the integrity of Canada Goose and the quality of our products. We believe that no one can do it better. But there’s a more important reason than that. Cold weather is part of our national identity, and there are no better judges of the quality of our products than those for whom they are designed — and by whom they were inspired. We’re proud to have Canadians rely on us for protection in unspeakably cold conditions. We stay in Canada because that’s who we are. Founded in a small warehouse in Toronto, Canada, over fifty years ago, Canada Goose has since grown to be recognized internationally as one of the world’s leading manufacturers of extreme weather outerwear.
