Canada Goose plans to double staff at new Winnipeg factory as it eyes global expansion

Canada Goose has been quickly building its capacity over the past two years after securing a deal with U.S. private investment firm Bain Capital, which took a majority stake in the brand.

Canada Goose plans to double staff at a new factory in Winnipeg by early next year as it lays the groundwork for a bigger international expansion.

President and CEO Dani Reiss says a new facility opened last month and already employs 80 people.

He hopes to see that level spike — first to about 160 employees by March with a further goal of 364 people working there by the end of March 2017.

“We want to be able to support growth in the markets … where we’re growing very quickly,” Reiss said in an interview.

The company says hiring is being done in partnership with the Manitoba government, which has helped support the training of employees.
