Canada Goose (Metro Sportswear Ltd.) named one of Canada's fastest-growing companies

For two consecutive years, Canada Goose ranks on PROFIT 100

TORONTO, June 5, 2007 – Significant and steady growth has landed Metro Sportswear Ltd., the Canadian manufacturer/brand owner of Canada Goose outerwear and accessories, on the Next 100 PROFIT ranking of Canada's Fastest-Growing Companies for two consecutive years.

Unveiled yesterday, Canada Goose (Metro Sportswear Ltd.) is the only Canadian outerwear manufacturer to achieve a spot on the prestigious PROFIT ranking. The 19th annual listing, published in the June 2007 issue of PROFIT and online at PROFITguide.com, is a cross-sector ranking that profiles the country's most successful growth companies based on five-year revenue growth.

“Canada Goose is a strong luxury brand that delivers on its promise of supreme quality, Canadian authenticity and technical function,” explains Dani Reiss, CEO of Metro Sportswear Ltd/Canada Goose. “The brand's wide international recognition as the best and warmest parkas money can buy has certainly contributed to its incredible growth, combined with our loyal customers and valued retailers worldwide.”

“PROFIT 100 companies are the new heroes of Canadian business, creating jobs at home and products used around the world,” says Ian Portsmouth, editor of PROFIT. “They've accomplished this by building great employee teams, exploiting export markets and rapidly responding to the customer's fast-changing needs.”
