Workforce Planning Hamilton is planning a Manufacturing Day event which will bring together students and local advanced manufacturing employers during October 2018.
Evidence from Manufacturing employers shows that manufacturing businesses are facing significant recruitment and retention challenges.
Manufacturing Day takes place on October 5, 2018.
On October 24, 2016 WPH presented

was presented from October 23-27, 2017 in partnership with Edge Factor. The goal of this virtual event for students, teachers, and parents was to
increase the awareness of the manufacturing sector.
A free Rock MFG DAY Kit was shared with high school teachers so that they could inspire their students and to reach parents.
