A WORD ABOUT DOWN
We choose down because it is the world's best insulator, providing approximately three times the warmth per ounce as synthetic insulators, ultimately creating a significantly warmer and lighter product. Each ounce of down has approximately two million fluffy filaments that interlock and overlap to create insulating pockets of air, which keeps you warm. When cared for properly, a high-quality down-filled coat will last for generations.
Canada Goose is deeply committed to the preservation of our global environment and the humane treatment of animals. We never use down from live-plucking and only purchase down that comes as a by-product from the poultry industry.
All the down insulation that Canada Goose uses is Canadian by content and sourced globally. We purchase all of our down from Feather Industries Canada Ltd., a Canadian down-procurement company. All feathers and down procured by Feather Industries are purchased from approved vendors, and these suppliers are fully aware of our policies and share the same philosophical and ethical position.
Canada Goose was a founding member of the Down Association of Canada and has been an active participant for the 30 years since. For more information on down and its benefits, please visit our partner’s website at www.downmark.ca.
