QUALITY ASSURANCE


The growing demand for down and feather products has resulted in a proliferation of products being imported into Canada every year.

Unfortunately, not all of these products meet Canada’s strict quality standards and some are labelled with false or misleading claims about the content and quality of the down and feather fill.

This reality makes it very difficult to know exactly which products are genuine, and puts Canadian consumers at risk of paying more for lesser quality or possibly even fake down and/or feather products.

This is where the Down Association of Canada helps with our DOWNMARK® certification program. We are the only independent organization in Canada that serves to help Canadians find genuine down and feather-filled products.

For over 40 years, we have been dedicated to developing, monitoring, and helping to promote Canada’s strict quality standards. We have advocated for truthful labelling and advertising practices.  And during that time, we have been the trusted source for information to help Canadians buy down and feather products with confidence.

Our DOWNMARK® quality assurance logo is recognized worldwide as the gold standard for the certification of authentic down and feather products.

 THE DOWNMARK® LABEL GUARANTEES THAT YOU ARE CHOOSING A CERTIFIED, GENUINE DOWN AND FEATHER PRODUCT.
