BC Plant Tours 2022

OVERVIEW

As part of our October Manufacturing Month activities this year, we are organizing plant tours for High School students (Grade 10 – Grade 12). Our tours provide students and teachers with a different perspective about the variety of career options available in the industry and also showcase how fascinating the BC manufacturing industry is.

MANUFACTURING CAREERS IN CANADA

Modern manufacturing careers are highly skilled, highly valued, and well paying. Manufacturers are diverse, creative, modern, and role models. They’re designing and manufacturing the things that make modern life.

As problem solvers, they create efficient manufacturing processes, produce lower emission products, reduce waste; pushing the limits of technology and innovation. Manufacturers figure out how to make businesses greener, more productive, and more cost effective.
