Onata is rooted in indigenous culture. Our name means outdoors in Huron. Our business is a family affair.
Let’s do a little backtracking. Maurice Vincent decided to launch GV Snowshoes in 1982. Several years later, Stephen Vincent followed in his father’s footsteps and also began working for the family business. It was he who took over the reins of GV and decided, in 2017, to found Onata, a range of products for camping and the outdoors.
