Founded in 1957 by Sam Tick in a small warehouse in Toronto, Canada Goose has grown over the past sixty-plus years into one of the world’s leading manufacturers of technical and luxury outerwear. Originally named Metro Sportswear Ltd., the company specialized in producing woolen vests, raincoats, and snowmobile suits in its early days. In the 70s, David Reiss, Sam Tick’s son-in-law, joined the company and introduced groundbreaking outerwear made using a volume-based down filling machine as well as the label Snow Goose, the precursor to Canada Goose. However, it wasn’t until the 80s that Canada Goose began to establish itself as the highly visible brand it’s known as today with the debut of the iconic Expedition Parka, which was developed to meet the unique needs of scientists at Antarctica’s McMurdo Station and has since become one of the most recognizable winter parkas on the planet. More recently, Canada Goose has introduced lightweight products suitable for diverse climates and high-intensity activities, opened its first two flagship stores in Toronto and New York City, and launched a line of knitwear made from luxurious merino wool materials.
