Some of the Canadian clothing brands I’ll be listing in this post are sustainable companies, while others are brands that make high-quality and long-lasting pieces.

If you’re looking for even more awesome Canadian brands, I’ve got blog posts all about the best shoe brands in Canada and the best Canadian clean beauty brands!

Whether you’re looking to support local Canadian companies or just refresh your wardrobe with some cool new pieces, you’ll definitely love all of these clothing brands in Canada.

Here are some of the best clothing brands and companies in Canada to shop!

Best Canadian mid-range clothing brands


Kotn is an amazing sustainable clothing brand based out of Toronto.

They make everyday basics using ethically-produced Egyptian cotton, perfect for keeping in your capsule wardrobe.

I used to have a literal obsession with Aritzia – I knew every single piece they had in-stores and I didn’t even work there.

They have gorgeous and luxurious pieces at decent prices, and they have their own in-house brands alongside other popular brands.

They’re based out of Vancouver, which is where they hold their warehouse sale every year!

Oak + Fort

Oak + Fort started out in Vancouver back in 2010, and they’ve grown across North America since.

They make simple and minimal clothing with their own little twist for both women and men.

Oak + Fort is all about the neutral pieces, but they do have some pretty pastel pieces here and there!

They also have a line of environmentally-conscious clothing using sustainable materials.

Frank and Oak

Frank and Oak is a Montreal-based sustainable brand that offers both womenswear and menswear.

They’ve got basic pieces in fun colourways and prints, as well as classic denim staples.

Smash + Tess

Smash + Tess is another sustainable Canadian clothing company, and they’re based out of Vancouver.

They’re known for their adorable and cozy rompers, but they’ve got other clothing pieces as well!

You can find matching mommy and me pieces, as well as men’s rompers.


We all know and love Roots, famous for their leather bags and cozy sweatpants.

They were founded in Toronto in 1973, and they’ve been an iconic Canadian company ever since!

Naked and Famous

Naked and Famous makes raw denim, which basically molds to the shape of your body and fades at certain points depending on how your body moves.

They mostly offer men’s pieces, but they do have clothing for women as well!

They source their denim directly from denim mills in Japan, and their denim is all hand-sewn in Canada.

My friends were super into raw denim for a period during high school, and they literally never washed their jeans because they wanted to preserve the shape lol.

Hilary MacMillan

I fell in love with Hilary MacMillan’s pieces when I saw them at Toronto Fashion Week.

Her pieces are elevated and chic – perfect for the working woman who doesn’t want to look boring!

All her pieces are cruelty-free and made without leather or fur.

Since her clothing is designer, it is a bit pricier, but it’s totally worth it for the quality!

Lesley Hampton

Lesley Hampton is an Indigenous-owned, women-led, and size-inclusive Canadian clothing and accessory brand all about “athluxury” and occasion-wear pieces.

They’re based out of Toronto, and Lesley herself is also a signed curve model!

Most of their pieces are made-to-order to avoid overproduction, and they’re working towards making their production more sustainable.

Based out of Montreal, one of the coldest cities in Canada, Mackage makes some of the best jackets and outerwear.

I absolutely adore their edgy style, and their leather moto jackets are my fave.

Their pieces are pricy, but the quality is impeccable and their jackets will literally last you forever.

I’ve had my Mackage leather jacket for 8 years now, and it’s still in perfect condition!

While they are known for their outerwear, they also have some ready-to-wear clothing pieces you can shop as well!

Ladurée Yorkdale Mall


Rudsak is another outerwear brand based out of Montreal, and their pieces are similar to Mackage.

From leather jackets, to down jackets, to wool coats, they have so many gorgeous outerwear pieces.

They also have some ready-to-wear pieces like tops, bottoms, and dresses!
