Frequently asked questions

How can I tell if something is Canadian made?

Taking a peek at the product’s label is the fastest and easiest way to determine where it was made. Look for either the words “Made in” or “Origin”. You might also see a red maple leaf logo which symbolizes that a product is of Canadian origin.

This works if you’re in store but if you’re online, look for the product description for details of where it was manufactured or originated. If there are no details, it’s a good idea to head to the brand’s website to check out the “About Us” or “Our Story” sections for information regarding its production process or to contact them to ask them where they make their items.


Is there a difference between Canadian made and Canadian manufactured?

No. These terms are often used interchangeably and both mean that the item was created in Canada.


Is there a difference between Made in Canada and Product of Canada?

Yes. According to the Competition Bureau, an item can be marked Made in Canada if the majority of its manufacturing or production occurred in Canada. This could be as little as 51%.

A Product of Canada on the other hand requires that all, or at least 98%, of its total direct production or manufacturing costs were in Canada.

For both, the last substantial transformation of the item must have been in Canada.


What does Canadian designed mean?

When searching for an item’s origin you may see that an item is designed in Canada but manufactured somewhere else.

This is because the conceptual idea was developed in Canada, and perhaps prototypes were made here too, but the manufacturing process was outsourced to another country. This is often due to production costs which can be cheaper internationally than in Canada itself.

By buying Canadian designed, you’ll still be supporting local creators and their businesses. However, unless the label also states that it’s made or manufactured in Canada then you’ll also be supporting international economies.


What does Canadian owned mean?

A Canadian owned brand has a Canadian or a Canadian company as its main benefactor. While it may have factories in Canada, this doesn’t always have to be the case.


What does Canadian operated mean?

It’s common to see the terms “owned and operated” written in tandem. This means that the business is owned by a Canadian or a Canadian company and that its daily operations and headquarters are in Canada.

If a business is only operated in Canada, this means that its main benefactor is international but its offices, head staff and daily operations are based in Canada.


What percentage of the item needs to be made in Canada to be allowed to call itself Canadian made?

A product labelled Made in Canada must have at least 51% of its total direct costs for producing or manufacturing it occurring in Canada.

It’s also common for brands to add a qualifying statement to their labelling. For example, an item can say “Made in Canada with imported parts”.
