The Canadian Manufacturing Network and two keystone initiatives (Skills & Learning Portal and Manufacturing Jobs Resource Network) are the culmination of several years of industry-driven development and vetting and pilot group testing by over 20,000 industry users across Canada.
Additional grass-roots industry resources and all-sector Knowledge Networks round out the network's launch programming. The Canadian Manufacturing Network has a strong foundation. It is built on the partnership of two of Canada's leading manufacturing organizations - Excellence in Manufacturing Consortium (EMC) and the former Textiles Human Resources Council (THRC).
These two organizations bring more than 40 years of combined experience providing industry-driven programs and services, and grassroots subjectmatter- expertise. We have helped generate hundreds of millions in productivity improvements and economic impact for manufacturers.
Together, we are a one-stop-solution. We link manufacturers to their peers, related supply chain organizations, and all levels of government. And our portfolio of industry-driven services and initiatives is growing. We provide Canadian manufacturers with the tools they need to succeed.
