A Blueprint on Ensuring the Survival of the Manufacturing Industry in Ontario 

This year, we had partnered with the Canadian Manufacturers and Exporters to develop  a manufacturing strategy focused on the core issues and challenges faced by Ontario's industry today.

Our Industrie 2030 Ontario action plan reflects on where we need to go in order to be globally competitive, and offers specific recommendations to create the conditions to support the doubling of manufacturing output in Ontario by 2030.

The release of our manufacturing strategy report is only the beginning. We will work with you, our members and partners, the broader manufacturing community, key supporters of the sector, and the government to: effect change, maximize the potential of the sector, and to drive growth and prosperity for the entire province.
