Canada Goose, known for its winter coats and its many winter coats, is abandoning its Boisbriand factory, which opened in 2017. Nearly 180 employees will lose their jobs by July, according to mass layoff notices published by the Department of Labor.
Canada Goose, which expires at the end of July, responded to the activities of the Boisbriand plant at our Chabanel headquarters over the following months, including the relocation of employees, in an official statement emailed to Journalism. The Chabanel Historic Garment District is a perfect fit for Montreal manufacturers and has many advantages, including access to public transportation, talent, and opportunities for future expansion in the area. We remain deeply committed to our business in Canada and will continue to manufacture our products locally in Quebec and across the country. »
At present it was impossible to know how many employees were in the total work at Boisbriand’s factory or to know how many employees would be transferred to Montreal.
Last fall, during a visit to the facilities of the specialist in winter coats, Rue Chabanel, company representatives said there were a total of 300 vacancies at the Montreal and Boysbriand factories. In Quebec, Canada Goose had 700 employees.
