Canada has always been associated with all things cold, snowy and wintry, so it makes sense that some of the coolest outerwear brands keeping us warm call our country home. Here, some of our favourite Canadian winter coats to shop in 2023.


When Montreal-based brand Lamarque first launched in 2012, the designers had one goal: to create the ultimate biker jacket. Things escalated quickly from there, and the leather-focused label’s offerings now include miniskirts, oversized blazers and party dresses—but chic, durable leather coats and jackets made with uncompromising attention to detail are still its first priority. Today, Lamarque’s contemporary coats are so popular, they’re often spotted on celebrities and influencers during fashion weeks around the globe. Our editors’ picks for this season? The brand’s double-faced wool capes, faux- shearling aviator coats and faux- leather oversized belted blazers.

Arc’teryx doesn’t mess around when it comes to designing coats that are guaranteed to keep you warm. The brand tests its pieces in B.C.’s Coast Mountains, which offer an ever-changing climate and conditions that are perfect for putting these high-endurance garments under pressure. The Alpha SV, which Arc’teryx has been continuously refining over the past 20 years, has changed the game in the alpine-jacket industry with its unparalleled durability, lightness and performance.

Adhere to Studios

It’s obvious that the team behind Adhere to Studios are obsessed with outerwear—and you will be too once you get your hands on one of its coats. Walking a fine line between style and performance, this woman-owned label approaches outerwear with a sustainability-first mindset: All pieces are made with repurposed and recycled materials sourced from responsible accredited suppliers. The down used in its warmer coats, for example, is made from regenerated feathers. The brand’s cool factor goes even higher when you consider its effortlessly chic aesthetic. We love alternating between the versatile cropped puffers and the military-inspired light parkas as the temperatures fluctuate.

Canada Goose x Rokh x Matt McCormick

Canada Goose needs no introduction. The iconic outerwear brand is always sure to make the most of the perks of fame, regularly debuting coveted lines created in collaboration with both up-and-coming names and established labels. This time around, it has partnered with London-based Rokh, known for its fast-selling (and therefore hard-to-come-by) deconstructed trenches. That’s not all; it has also brought multidisciplinary artist Matt McCormick into the fold to create exclusive prints inspired by Western Americana (think cowboys, mountains, valleys and old motels) for the line. The eight-piece collection dropped in early September and includes padded trucker jackets, a wool sweater, a wide-brimmed hat, puffer coats and more.

Through the use of high-performance recycled materials that are bio-based and animal-free, the brand produces technologically advanced designs contributing to a circular economy. When you’re ready to replace your parka, the brand’s trade-up program cycles it back into the community to help those in need in exchange for a $100 credit toward a new Wuxly coat.
