Canada Goose has long been criticised by animal welfare groups like PETA.

The retailer’s president and chief executive, Dani Reiss, said the decision to stop using fur was linked to the company wanting to become more sustainable.

Humane Society International said the decision was a “momentous step in the demise of cruel fur fashion”.

PETA said the down industry use painful methods to kill geese for their feathers, but Canada Goose’s website says the company use responsibly sourced down from the poultry industry.
