ᐊᑎᒋᓕᐅᕐᓂᖅ PROJECT ATIGI

The designers of Project Atigi are mothers and grandmothers, nurses and teachers, office workers and small business owners—but when they pick up a needle and thread, they become something else: Designers. Calling upon a deep tradition of craftsmanship and their own unique creativity, they shape fabric into something functional and beautiful.

We celebrate these Inuit designers as both the original parka makers and as the faces of the future, who are using their time and talent to share their culture and create opportunities for themselves and their communities. Each of the parkas, handmade by the designers of Project Atigi, is an expression of their own unique point-of-view. When you purchase a Project Atigi parka, you’re also making an investment in the place and people that shape them, with proceeds going to all four regions of Inuit Nunangat.

Canada Goose was born in the North and for generations we have been inspired by its people, communities and landscapes.

When translated into English, the Inuktitut word “atigi” means “parka”. In a literal sense, that’s the story behind this initiative: Canada Goose partnered with Inuit designers to make a one-of-a-kind parka collection.

This exclusive collection was developed to create social entrepreneurship opportunities for Inuit designers by leveraging our global platform to showcase their extraordinary craftsmanship and unique designs.

Proceeds from the sale of the collection will go to Inuit communities through Inuit Tapiriit Kanatami (ITK), the national Inuit representational organization that works with the four Inuit regions of Inuit Nunangat. ITK uses research, advocacy, public outreach and education to promote Inuit health, well-being and prosperity through unity and self-determination.
