Canada's #1 School Uniform supplier for over half a century.

At McCarthy’s, we are grateful to have the opportunity to outfit Canadian families with school and work uniforms. For over sixty years, we have taken great pride paying it forward. Both professionally and personally, community service is “who we are”.

Some of the ways we support the communities we operate in include:

Uniform Assistance Program

The McCarthy’s team has a proud tradition of offering a Uniform Assistance Program to students who demonstrated financial need. No student at a school officially outfitted by McCarthy’s will go without a uniform due to financial need. Our team pioneered this program, a first of its kind in the world!

McCarthy’s Scholarship Program

McCarthy’s helps to create a culture of service for future generations by awarding high school students who have demonstrated a commitment to their communities with an annual scholarship. Over $300,000 in scholarships were awarded in 2018.

Special Needs Students

McCarthy’s pays special attention to students with special needs. Our tradition is to ensure that special needs students at schools officially outfitted by McCarthy’s will have the ability to receive free customization of their uniform garments to meet their specific requirements. Meet some of our experts and learn how we accommodate special needs here.

Ethical Manufacturing

McCarthy’s has a long standing commitment to ethical manufacturing. We only work with factories that are of the highest global standard and we actively engage both third parties and senior management in regular factory reviews. We are pleased that McCarthy’s has been recognized as a leader in corporate social responsibility and has never been in violation of an act deemed as a zero tolerance act by a third-party auditor of ethical practices.

Community Giving

In addition to a generous school uniform assistance policies, we also actively participate in a variety of local charities that support families, with a specific focus on helping women and youth. We are honoured to work with the following organizations:

Sistering: a local Canadian organization that changes womens’ lives by providing a safe space, training and support for women experiencing extreme poverty, trauma or homelessness. McCarthy’s provides Sistering with warm and comforting apparel for their shelter locations – small luxuries for these women that make a tremendous difference.

World Vision: McCarthy’s is a proud long-term partner of World Vision, one of the world’s leading humanitarian organizations, dedicated to helping children, families, and their communities overcome poverty and injustice. This partnership sees thousands of apparel items donated to impoverished communities in El Salvador and Costa Rica. Stay tuned for footage and photos of our donations in action.
