Canada Goose has blinked.

After years of sustained advocacy from a multitude of non-profits including The Fur-Bearers (who also filed a legal complaint regarding the company’s claims), community groups and others, Canada Goose is reportedly going fur-free.

In a media release issued via BusinessWire.com, the American-owned company stated, “Through a phased approach, Canada Goose will end the purchase of fur by the end of 2021 and cease manufacturing with fur no later than the end of 2022.”

A report by Reuters indicates Canada Goose will continue to use down filling in their products.

Last year, Canada Goose announced a fur buy back program, which would end their purchasing of new coyote fur; the success of that program is unknown, and may have contributed to the alleged decision to go fur-free.

The Fur-Bearers are cautiously optimistic about this news and will continue to provide updates as they’re available.

Coyotes are frequently caught and killed with inherently inhumane traps in Canada, including body-gripping traps like leg-holds and Conibears, as well as snares, which are not covered by the Agreement on International Humane Trapping Standards.
