CME launches 2018 Management Issue Survey

Ottawa, July 18, 2018

Canadian Manufacturers & Exporters (CME) and the Canadian Manufacturing Coalition, and our partners Food & Consumer Products of Canada (FCPC), and BDO Canada LLP released today the 2018 Management Issue Survey.

The bi-annual survey examines the core priorities of Canadian manufacturers today and explore their outlook for the future. It allows manufacturers to drive CME’s common vision and strategy for the future of Canadian manufacturing and global business.

Past iterations of this survey have led to the identification of serious challenges for manufacturers which prompted CME advocacy efforts and resulted positive policy changes, notably in the areas of business tax reductions, investment supports, access to skilled workers and exports supports.

The survey takes 30 minutes to complete and responses will be held strictly confidential. Participants who take CME’s Management Issues Survey before September 7th and could win* 2 tickets to CME’s 2018 Annual General Meeting and Manufacturing Conference, November 7th, where the survey results will be revealed.


Since 1871, Canadian Manufacturers & Exporters has been helping manufacturers grow at home and, compete around the world. Our focus is to ensure manufacturers are recognized as engines for growth in the economy, with Canada acknowledged as both a global leader and innovator in advanced manufacturing and a global leader in exporting. CME is a member-driven association that directly represents more than 2,500 leading companies who account for an estimated 82 per cent of manufacturing output and 90 per cent of Canada’s exports.
