Founded in 1930 by Laura Wolstein, Laura Canada is a family-owned women’s fashion company carrying two brands: Laura and Melanie Lyne. Based in Quebec, we design, produce, market and distribute clothing and accessories across Canada. Today, we operate more than 140 Laura and Melanie Lyne stores from coast to coast, and a successful e-commerce website.
Our rich history, outstanding culture, talented and dedicated team, and loyal customer-base have allowed us to become a leader in the industry.
As a show of its commitment towards equality between every kind of woman, Laura begins to open double and triple concept stores, welcoming women to shop together with their friends, no matter their silhouette. Laura Canada begins a relationship with the Canadian Cancer Society, and donates over 2 million dollars to cancer research before the decade ends.
Today, Kalman leads Laura Canada, continuing a family-owned legacy that stretches back over 80 years. Our carefully curated collections are featured in Laura and Melanie Lyne stores from sea-to-sea throughout nine Canadian provinces, from Victoria, British Columbia to St. John’s, Newfoundland, to the bustling downtown cores of Toronto and Montreal. The website laura.ca launched in 2012, and melanielyne.com followed two years later in 2014, making Laura Wolstein's empowering, original vision of the do-everything woman accessible to every woman in the comfort of her own home.
