Canada Goose has expanded its Winnipeg production facility to increase manufacturing and add new jobs.

“When other companies moved production overseas to chase better margins, we took a big risk and told the world that ‘Made in Canada’ was going to work,” said Dani Reiss, president and CEO of Canada Goose. “We made a decision to keep production at home and we continue to invest in rebuilding manufacturing infrastructure here in Canada to deliver on that commitment.”

The company also announced Wednesday the opening of its new 96,000-square-foot factory and global headquarters in Toronto. Combined with the Winnipeg expansion, Canada Goose will add about 200 new jobs.

The winter clothing manufacturer employs approximately six percent of the cut and sew labour industry in Canada, and has grown more than 4,000 percent in the past decade.

Its 57,000-square-foot Winnipeg factory is located at 365 Bannatyne Avenue in the Exchange District. Canada Goose last expanded its local facility in 2013.
