From the iconic Scottish squares to the elegant Olympic clothing, and the world-famous tuxedo, Canada has been a major player in the fashion industry. With a booming economy and a 4.1% growth in real Gross Domestic Product (GDP) in 1997, the country has become a significant contributor to the global fashion industry. Statistics from the fashion and clothing sector reveal that it is responsible for 10% of annual carbon emissions worldwide. Canada is also one of the few countries to have its own fashion week, with Montreal being the eighth city in the world to do so, after fashion capitals such as Milan, Los Angeles and London.

Trends in this sector clearly demonstrate that it is one of the largest industries in the world and continues to expand. This is supported by one of the initiatives implemented by the Quebec government in 1994 to promote fashion design and increase sales of high-quality garments with high added value. In 1988, Canadian households spent 6% of their disposable income on clothing and footwear, which fell to 4.7% (in 1998). However, as numbers are gradually returning to pre-pandemic levels, Canada has great potential to be an excellent base for manufacturers, fashion brands, retailers and wholesalers around the world.

Between chemicals used in production processes, large amounts of water needed for production and piles of clothes ending up in landfills, fashion is one of the worst industries for our planet.
