125+ Ethical & Sustainable Canadian Fashion Brands | Ultimate List


I generally avoid clothes shopping online at non-Canadian sites because the duty and customs fees can be ridiculously high. To spare you fellow Canucks the pain of spending more than the poor loonie can stretch, I've compiled a master list of fantastic ethical and sustainable Canadian clothing brands and retailers. While these clothes are ethically produced, not every brand uses biodegradable/sustainable fabrics, so please do your own research.

I'm happy to see that many Canadian fashion designers are focused on using natural fibres such as linen and organic cotton—machine washable! I also see a pattern in terms of design: feminine, comfortable, minimalist, reflective of our unfussy elegance.

While most of the brands make womenswear, I note when brands also make men's and children's clothes too. I also note when brands offer plus sizes beyond XL.
