Updated: Mar 8
To celebrate Canada Day, Giftagram is excited to feature the Province of Canada, a company that has taken a fresh spin on Canadiana apparel that is Made in Canada. Province of Canada creates pieces that align with the true spirits of citizens that showcase the natural beauty of the country. They go beyond the traditional souvenir items that show Canadian pride with the maple leaf and red and white. With a flagship store located in downtown Toronto or online, Province of Canada makes it easy to proudly be Canadian.
The Meaning Behind Province of Canada
Province of Canada and Giftagram share the same values of offering best-in-class gifts. With a wide range of apparel from sweatpants to socks, Province of Canada doesn’t compromise on local manufacturing. Since launching in 2014, the Province of Canada brand has become synonymous with well-made products designed and manufactured in Canada.
How did the Province of Canada come to be? There was a time in Canadian history when Upper Canada (Ontario) and Lower Canada (Quebec) merged to form the United Province of Canada. The name that originated in 1841 made sense for an all Canadian lifestyle brand; it was both province and country, and paid homage to a time when everyday items were made locally and the citizens valued quality above all else.
The Founders Story
With the Co-Founder Julie and Jeremy love for graphic design and quality textile, they launched Province of Canada in 2014 with a tight collection of made in Canada pieces and has since grown into a line of adult, kids, home textiles all remaining true to their vision of what a Canadian brand can look like. The inspiration and concept behind the Province of Canada is simple. They've taken what they appreciated most about Canada and presented it through their casual lifestyle lens.
Made in Canada
When you gift someone Province of Canada and see the “Made in Canada’ label on the gift, it shows an extra layer of thoughtfulness. It shows that the gifter has put extra care into what they have chosen. With the tricolor flag in the form of a ribbon on their crewneck cuffs or t-shirt sleeve, it is their way of authenticating the DNA of each Province of Canada piece as 100% designed and manufactured in Canada, a stamp of Canadian approval. The muted red and gray colors, the flag’s proportions are true to the Canadian flag, their way of staying committed to keeping everything made in Canada.
