In Partnership With
Our name, Mr. Derk, embodies a story of over seventy-five years of passion for the textile and apparel industry.
Our company was originally formed in 1939 by the hands of Stephen Derk — a trained craftsman in the art of tailoring, and patriarch of the Derks family. Stephen was forced to make garments for German officers during WWII, but upon fleeing their grasp, he found refuge in Italy. Stephen eventually worked his way to Edmonton Alberta, Canada to start a new life, and continued to work in his trade for over 30 years.
We named our menswear division “Mr. Derk” to both honour our roots and offer a gesture of thanks to our patriarch. His love for fine tailored goods, hard work, and elegance are virtues we embody to this day.

5 Artists 1 Love Supports
Since 1971, Autism Edmonton (Autism Society of Edmonton Area) has been providing services and support to people in the community who are living with autism spectrum disorder. Autism Edmonton has become known as a "go-to" source that connects families, individuals and professionals with autism-related resources.
Autism Edmonton helps people navigate their options for services, find vital information, and develop skills and peer support through facilitated activity and discussion groups.
At Adarius for Autism (A4A) we typically work with young autistic kids and youth ranging between the ages of 8 to 22. We are a not for profit Corporation that is based in Edmonton. One of our main objectives at A4A is creating awareness for those who have Autism Spectrum Disorder. We are able to pragmatically assist these individuals by integrating them in a diverse community. One that is not inclusive only to those who have Autism Spectrum Disorder. In doing so, we hope to build a program that is beneficial to a diversified community, that will eventually aid in the acceptance, tolerance and assimilation of those with autism. At A4A we intend to create opportunities for these individuals by assisting with job training, job applications and discovering talents and career passions.
