Established over 150 years ago, in small, urban communities that offered a stable labour supply and rivers ideally suited for water-generated power and dyeing/finishing processes, the Canadian textile industry started with the manufacture of yarns and fabrics from natural fibres. Currently, the industry is located mainly in Quebec and Ontario, is heavily capital-intensive, uses natural, artificial and manmade fibres and filaments, and supplies a wide range of value-added products to over 150 consumer, household and industrial customers in Canada and worldwide.
