Quebec a "hub" for sportswear design
According to Nantel (pictured), sportswear and activewear is one of top-five growing industries in Canada since the 208 financial collapse.
"It's one of the few industries that has been surviving and thriving across that turmoil."
There is a market of 1.5 billion dollars in Canada. In Quebec 300-400 million dollars of sales are made each year.
Sales of sportswear are growing by about six per cent a year, even outstripping the growth of electronics.
