Founded in a small warehouse in Toronto, Canada almost sixty years ago, Canada Goose has grown into one of the world’s leading makers of Arctic luxury apparel. Started in 1957 by Sam Tick, Dani Reiss—his grandson—now leads as President & CEO. With Dani at the helm, Canada Goose has revolutionized a dying apparel manufacturing industry in Canada thanks to its commitment to make its products on Canadian soil. Rooted in purpose and designed for performance, people who wear Canada Goose seek adventure around the globe, whether it’s in the depths of the Arctic or on busy city streets.
