How can you tell if shoes are Canadian made?
Most companies or brands will advertise if their products are made in Canada on their websites. If you can’t locate this information, we recommend heading over to the “About” or “Our Story” page of the website where you can usually find the manufacturing locations.
The Competition Bureau in Canada also issue fines to any businesses that claim to be “Made in Canada” but don’t follow these rules:
- 51% of the manufacturing costs are incurred within Canada
- The actual assembling itself needs to be done in Canada
- Claims of “Made in Canada” need to be followed up with where the textiles are sourced if they are imported from overseas.
Why buy Canadian made shoes?
Buying Canadian made shoes comes with a plethora of benefits:
- Economic injection. One of the biggest factors is your money being placed right back into the Canadian market rather than being sent overseas.
- Higher quality. Some of the shoe brands mentioned above hand make their shoes and many pride themselves on the quality of their textiles. With such an emphasis on longevity, you won’t have to reinvest every season on a pair.
- Faster and cheaper shipping. Forget paying for international delivery fees and waiting weeks for arrival, buying locally manufactured goods equals lower shipping costs and faster delivery times.
Are Canadian made shoes more expensive?
You could expect to pay more for Canadian made shoes compared to those manufactured overseas. In most instances, the shoes are crafted from high-quality materials (such as leather) and thus the prices may increase. Also, keep in mind that your money is paying the wages of employees here in Canada instead of those internationally.
With this being said, you don’t have to pay for any international transaction fees, expensive shipping costs or returns. You’ll also have a higher chance of being able to return the products in-store rather than having to pay for it yourself.
