Response Program helps front-line workers

In mid December, Canada Goose partnered with Inuit Tapiriit Kanatami and Canadian North to deliver 7,000 units of Canadian‐made personal protective equipment (PPE) to front‐line workers in Nunatsiavut, Nunavut, and the Inuvialuit Settlement Region. 

The donation is part of the Canada Goose Response Program, which includes 14,000 units of PPE already donated across Canada and 20,000 units to Mount Sinai Health System in New York. The Response Program supports the brand’s HUMANATURE platform. 

At the beginning of the pandemic, Canada Goose retrofitted all eight of its manufacturing facilities and pivoted from creating parkas to medical gowns and scrubs to help protect front‐line workers. They have produced more than 2.5 million additional PPE units, all at cost, to fill provincial and federal contracts, including 100,000 units to Manitoba, 260,000 to Ontario and 400,000 to Quebec. 

Canada Goose continues to work closely with federal, provincial and local health authorities to provide as much PPE as possible to those in need.
