Founded in 1957 by Sam Tick in a small warehouse in Toronto, Canada Goose has grown over the past sixty years into one of the world’s leading manufacturers of technical and luxury outerwear. Originally named Metro Sportswear Ltd., the company originally specialized in producing woolen vests, raincoats, and snowmobile suits. In the 1970s, 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 1980s 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, Canada Goose has since created some of the most recognizable winter parkas on the planet. More recently, the brand has introduced lightweight products suitable for diverse climates and high-intensity activities and launched a line of knitwear made from luxurious merino wool materials.
