HELPING MANUFACTURERS GROW.  

ABOUT CME

From the first industrial boom in Canada, Canadian Manufacturers & Exporters (CME) has been advocating for and representing member interests.

Nearly 150 years strong, we have earned an extensive and effective track record of working for and with 2,500 leading manufacturers from coast to coast to help their businesses grow.

Our success comes from integrating the association with industry, being run by manufacturers for manufacturers. Led by a national board of directors made up of senior leaders from a diverse group of Canadian manufacturers of all sizes, we have our finger on the pulse of the sector.

Overcoming your challenges and maximizing opportunities are at the forefront of everything we do. CME has member-driven programs and services to help you work on your business. We partner with you to strengthen your competitive advantage by building your knowledge and capacity in key areas, like LEAN and productivity; trade and export; energy and environment; leadership development; safety and more.

As your advocate, CME has the ear of all levels of government in Canada and in key markets around the world. We actively work to influence and recommend effective policies that will allow manufacturers to compete at home and abroad.

CME works wherever you are – with regional chapters in every province, championed by local manufacturers just like you. This multi-pronged approach has provided us with the credibility to confidently speak as the voice of manufacturing in Canada.
