Canadian Fashion Connection – Trans-Canada Shoes

Founded in c. 1954 (the logo was registered that year), Trans-Canada Shoes was a retail chain, headquartered in Quebec, that sold Canadian-made footwear, primarily from Quebec manufacturers. The chain was mostly located in strip plazas and suburban malls. The company didn’t weather the early 1990s recession and closed in c. 1991.
