Members of the Canadian Manufacturing Coalition (CMC), a group representing Canada’s manufacturing trade associations, chaired by Canadian Manufacturers & Exporters (CME), met with Ministers and MPPs Queen’s Park on Dec. 6 to discuss how government and industry can work together to drive investment in manufacturing and grow the sector.

The CTMA’s president, Louis Jahn, and past president, Chris Hergott, attended Manufacturing Day at Queen’s Park on Dec. 6. Louis and Chris met with many Ministers and MPPs, including Anthony Leardi; Patrice Barnes; Ted Arnott; Rob Flack; and Alan Arcan, Chief Economist at Canadian Manufacturers & Exporters (CME); to raise awareness for issues affecting CTMA members and members of the industry, as well as to discuss the CTMA’s initiatives, including the Career-Ready with CTMA: Expanding Opportunities program.

“All the Ministers we met with on Manufacturing Day were very welcoming and took the time to better understand how the Provincial Governments support the Career-Ready program and how it is making such a positive impact on young people entering the workforce,” said Jahn. “Their commitment to continued support and openness of acknowledging both the accomplishments and challenges of the manufacturing sector is an asset to the province.”

The CTMA is a member of Canadian Manufacturing Coalition, which is comprised of more than 30 industry associations representing all sectors of the Canadian industrial economy. Collectively, our associations represent roughly 100,000 companies and more than one million workers, coast-to-coast, the majority of which are Ontario-based and focused.
