Canada Goose Holdings Inc. says it will stop making products using fur by the end of next year.

The luxury parka maker will stop buying fur by the end of this year and stop manufacturing with fur no later than the end of 2022.

The company has been using wild coyote fur from Western Canada and the U.S.

Canada Goose CEO Dani Reiss says the decision will transform how the company makes its products.

The change comes after the company said last year that it would start using reclaimed fur and stop purchasing new fur in 2022.

Canada Goose has faced criticism from some animal rights groups for its use of fur.

This report by The Canadian Press was first published June 24, 2021.
