TESTIMONIALS

Zhimin

Sewing Machine Operator

I had never used a sewing machine before
and wasn’t sure if this was the career for
me. After touring Canada Goose and
seeing the beautiful facility and after
hearing about the benefits of working
with them, I decided to give it a try. The
essential skills that I learned at OFE
prepared me well for my training at
Canada Goose. The sewing machine
training at Canada Goose was challenging
at first, but the trainers were patient and
have given me the confidence to do well
in my new career.

Jacob

Sewing Machine Operator

The OFE staff created a positive learning
environment during my training to be
a sewing machine operator. Early on in
the program I struggled and was ready
to give up, but my facilitator and
employment coach walked with me
every step of the way and encouraged
me to not give up on my goal of being a
sewing machine operator. Every day I
learned something new that would help
prepare me for a new career. I am so
thankful that my facilitators and
employment coach pushed me to
succeed at Canada Goose!

Fernanda

Sewing Machine Operator

I have been in Canada since 2016 and had
never considered a career in the garment
industry. But I was open to venturing into
new opportunities. That’s when I found this
program at OFE. At OFE I received the
necessary training to work at Canada
Goose. I started work on the production
floor and now, one year later, I am the
Assistant Supervisor in the Training Centre!
Now I get the chance to help people just
like me begin their new career at Canada
Goose. I feel part of the Canada Goose
family and I can say that I have a new
profession!
