Aritzia’s HQ is located in Vancouver, BC. They sell mostly in-house brands such as Wilfred, TNA, Babaton, Talula, Sunday Best, and Community.
Aritzia is clear about their supply chain – nothing comes from, or is made in, Canada. Further, they are now publicly traded, but it appears that a majority stake is owned by US-based Berkshire Partners.
While they do employ a significant number of Canadians in their head office and retail network, if you’re looking for a highly Canadian retail chain, this isn’t really it.
