Canada Goose is a famous winter clothing manufacturer founded in 1957. It has recently come under scrutiny in China over its marketing tactics which state that its coats are made from “the warmest material from Hutterite”. According to China’s National Enterprise Credit Information Publicity System, as a result of Canada Goose costs being manufactured with the inclusion of other materials, it has fallen foul of Chinese advertising laws. As a result, Canada Goose has been fined $71,000.
This is not the first time Canada Goose has been on the receiving end of false advertisement allegations. In November 2020, Canada Goose were sued as a result of its advertisement which stated that it recovers its fur for its coats using ethical and humane trapping methods, when to the contrary it was alleged that Canada Goose does in fact obtain its fur from trappers who use inhumane leg-hold traps and snares which can be considered to be inhuman by industry professionals.
