Everything Manufacturers Need To Suceed,
All In One Place
Canadian Manufacturing Network (a division of Excellence in Manufacturing Consortium) is the culmination of EMC's national efforts over the past several years, to provide top tier online learning and other resources for manufacturers across Canada. Known for its comprehensive Online Skills and Learning Portal, Canadian Manufacturing Network is a leading solution for manufacturers to connect with their peers across Canada, access essential, business, technical and other skills and learning programs, labour market intelligence, a national manufacturing jobs program, program resources and sector based services.
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). The grassroots approach to industry resources and all-sector Knowledge Networks round out the network's launch programming.
These two organizations bring more than 40 years of combined experience providing industry-driven programs and services, and grassroots subject matter- 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.

ManufacturingGPS is a fully searchable LMI system, with benchmarking, skills and capability resources, reports and outreach portal to better help sectors by providing a crucial and unique tool that currently does not exist in Canada today! This macro-level LMI resource with the flexibility of micro-level detail, combined with EMC's extensive consortium and online network will better position Canadian manufacturers on the global productivity map.
The Workplace Literacy and Essential Skills Research (WLESR) is a Canada-wide initiative designed to boost productivity at the company level and at the level of the national economy.
Through a series of 10 case studies, WLESR is looking at the impact of Literacy and Essential Skills (LES) training interventions in manufacturing settings and will identify the factors that contribute to effective LES training. The end goal is to strengthen the business case regarding the value of LES workplace training so manufacturers, especially small and medium-sized firms, will invest in their workers to enhance performance.
