About Us

Meet Candace Murphy

Before I started NAO (North Atlantic Outerwear) I worked as a Pharmacy Technician. I was in this profession for 20 years before deciding to take a leap of faith to pursue my lifelong passion of becoming an entrepreneur.


I have always had a love for fashion and the outdoors, so I decided to combine the two and create a brand that represents my roots and my passion. The idea of creating a line of outerwear that is both stylish and functional came to me while I was out hiking with my family in the beautiful Cape Breton Highlands National Park.

Our products are designed with the outdoors in mind, so whether you're hiking in the mountains, walking on the beach, running errands in town, or just relaxing in your house, our clothing will keep you comfortable and looking stylish.


Products are Canadian made and/or designed in Canada
