Manufacturing Alberta’s Future


Manufacturing Alberta’s Future is a provincial strategy developed by Canadian Manufacturers & Exporters (CME) to leverage opportunities presented by Alberta’s manufacturing sector and usher in a new era of growth and prosperity in the province.

Manufacturing Alberta’s Future began by asking two simple questions: What are the major roadblocks holding back growth and prosperity and what are some bold ideas or solutions that would jumpstart manufacturing in Alberta?

These questions were at the beginning of the research and the province-wide consultation process that formed the heart of the study. CME heard about the issues, challenges and opportunities Alberta manufacturers see every day.

In addition to the in-person consultations, CME carried out a Manufacturing Alberta’s Future Survey to add quantitative depth to the analysis. These efforts were combined with rigorous economic analysis to identify where specific and direct action is needed to support and grow manufacturing in Alberta and reverse the concerning national trends of the past decade.

CME looks forward to working with association members, the Government of Alberta and the broader manufacturing community to affect change, maximize the potential for the sector and drive growth and prosperity for the entire province.
