Fur Buy Back Program Details
What is Canada Goose’s Fur Buy Back Program?
Canada Goose was founded on the belief that crafting high quality garments that keep people warm doesn’t have to come at the expense of the planet. From our inception, we have been committed to a sustainable future. Part of that commitment means we will repurpose existing materials when and where we can, including our introduction of reclaimed fur. Our ultimate goal is to end the purchasing of new fur for the creation of Canada Goose products by 2022.
To help achieve this ambitious goal, we’re excited to introduce our Fur Buy Back Program. Through this program, you will be able to return your new or gently used Canada Goose coyote Fur Trim and receive a credit via gift card to use towards any future purchase at Canada Goose.
What does Reclaimed Fur mean?
We remain committed to the functionality and sustainability of real fur, however we are challenging ourselves to do it better, reusing what already exists. In the North, sustainability is a way of life and people there have been working with reclaimed fur for centuries. This initiative draws inspiration from that resourcefulness. It’s the right decision for our business, our customers and most importantly, our future.
“Reclaimed” is different from “recycled.” Recycled materials are broken down through processes like melting or shredding before they’re used to make a different product. Reclaimed materials are returned to a condition where they can be reused for their original intended purpose – in this case, Fur Trims on Canada Goose jackets.

You agree that your submission in the Portal is an offer to exchange the Fur Trim to Canada Goose in consideration for a Gift Card in the relevant currency as listed under these Terms and Conditions. All buy back requests and Fur Trims are subject to acceptance by Canada Goose, in its sole discretion. Canada Goose has no obligation to accept or fulfill any requests. We reserve the right to request any information at any time for the purposes of administering the Program. Failure to provide such information in a timely manner may result in rejection of your submission. We may choose not to accept any submissions including those that Canada Goose suspects are not placed in good faith or contravene applicable law.

All decisions regarding the Program remain with Canada Goose. Canada Goose reserves the right, in its sole discretion, to modify, cancel, suspend and/or terminate any or all parts of the Program at any time and for any reason.
