19 Fashion Brands From Canada Making Moves in Sustainability

Our editors curate highly rated brands that are first assessed by our rigorous ratings system. Buying through our links may earn us a commission—supporting the work we do. Learn more.


Canadians are up there as some of the people most interested in supporting sustainable fashion, and have a few homegrown brands leaving their mark on the industry—we’ve rounded up 19 of them for you below.

Reduce your impact by supporting local brands

Sustainability is becoming increasingly important and more and more people are trying to reduce their impact on the planet. As more responsible fashion brands emerge to meet the demand and help change the fashion industry for the better, you’re likely to have better choice of companies located in your country or region. And shopping locally can have positive benefits, from supporting your community at home to reducing your carbon footprint when shopping online.

So, if you live in Canada, you might be wondering which clothing brands are doing it right, and we’ve compiled this list of “Good” or “Great” rated fashion brands either based or produced in the region.

What makes a better brand?

Simply put, a responsible brand makes sure it positively impacts on people, the planet, and animals.

It ensures its workers are treated fairly across the supply chain. This includes policies and practices on child labour, forced labour, worker safety, the right to join a union, and payment of a living wage.

A better brand also cares about its use of resources and energy, reducing its carbon emissions, impact on our waterways, as well as using and disposing of chemicals safely.

Finally, it uses no or very few animal products, like wool, leather, fur, angora, down feather, shearling, karakul, and exotic animal skin and hair. Ideally, the brand is 100% vegan.
