Last week at our Queen’s Park Reception, CME released Industrie 2030 Ontario, a roadmap to help government achieve the conditions manufacturers need to succeed. Following significant consultations with our members, we have identified solutions to enhance Ontario business competitiveness.” Industrie 2030 aims to create the business conditions on Ontario to support the doubling of manufacturing output to $600 billion by 2030. Its recommendations are focused on addressing the critical needs of Ontario’s manufacturing sector:

  • Creating a competitive business environment in Ontario that, through tax and regulatory reform and lower electricity prices, reduces business costs and encourages growth and production;
  • Addressing current skill shortages, improve technical skills training of youth and increase support for industry-led training and skills-development initiatives; and,
  • Introducing policies and support programs to assist companies with scale-up, technology adoption, and product commercialization
