About Us

We’re passionate about dress code and no-logo wear!

For over 60 years, McCarthy’s has been outfitting kids to work, learn and play.

During this time, we have learned that dress codes and no-logo wear help kids find and celebrate their unique personalities. Without the pressure of brands and logos, kids can be more confident, and school communities can be more cohesive.

We care about your family because we’re one too!

Our team has been working together, side by side, for generations! We all remember wearing McCarthy products, and our kids wear them too. Being a family-run, people-first company means that we understand that our products can’t just look nice on the shelf. They need to pass the tests of busy mornings, fun-filled recesses, after-school soccer practice—and weekly laundry—while still ensuring kids look great for school photos and assemblies.

Mirella Vial,
Director, Omni Channel & Data

I have been part of the McCarthy Uniforms family for almost 30 years! In that time I have seen uniforms and dress codes change, but I have always considered our job the same: helping kids to be their best. Being part of this community has been an incredible journey. I am excited to share our knowledge about no-logo kids wear through our new Navy & White line.

Tina Petramela,
Director, Human Resources

My mother wore a McCarthy Uniform, I wore a McCarthy Uniform and now my daughter wears one too. I know that there’s a great team and over 60 years of knowledge and love behind every McCarthy product, including our new Navy & White line.

Vanessa Iarocci,
President

As a mom of a digitally-savvy, hyper-connected 10 year old, I worry about building my son’s confidence and sense of independence. Part of the inspiration for our no-logo Navy & White brand was a desire to use our expertise in everyday school uniform apparel to ‘reduce the noise’ in classrooms and school yards and help ‘kids be kids’. I know this is also the goal of many of the principals who implement dress code policies in their schools as well.

Martin McCarthy,
Chairman

My family has had the privilege to work with school communities across the world to implement school uniforms. We are so thrilled to be expanding to more directly support elementary schools that are adopting more general dress code policies, and to serve parents who often come to us to ask for ‘no-logo’ everyday apparel for their kids.

At the end of the day, uniforms are not just regular apparel, they are about helping to build a sense of shared values and community.

Making a Difference

At McCarthy’s, community service is part of who we are as a company. Our founder, Bob McCarthy, was especially committed to ensuring that all families and children in the communities we serve have equal access to learning opportunities. Martin McCarthy, our company’s chairman continues to live this philosophy and today, is a strong advocate for the advancing the interests of families, with a specific focus on women and youth.

Some of the ways we support our communities, near and far, include:

McCarthy’s Uniform Assistance Program

We provide over $100,000 annually directly to families in need who are part of our family of schools. In 2018, our uniform assistance program extended to Syrian refugees. We were honoured to meet a diverse and exceptional group of new-to-Canada Syrian families, who were deeply moved on their first weekend in Canada, to receive complimentary uniforms for their children.

McCarthy’s Community Scholarship Program

We distribute over $70,000 annually through our graduation award program, to high school students who have demonstrated a commitment to their communities.

Sistering

We are honoured to partner with Sistering, a Canadian organization that changes women’s lives by providing safe spaces, training, and support for women experiencing extreme poverty, trauma or homelessness. McCarthy’s provides Sistering with warm apparel for their shelter locations.

International Focus

In addition to supporting local families, McCarthy’s is also proud to extend our support to communities around the world. Annually, our company develops a plan to focus on a specific region in need.

In 2018, we had the honour of supporting schools and orphanages in Nepal. In addition to providing financial and apparel donations to Nepalese orphanages, our head of technology personally visited a school in Nepal to donate computers for the classroom.
