Growing the Future of Manufacturing in Atlantic Canada

At the recent Advantage through Excellence: Future of Manufacturing  Conference, a delegation of over 60 Atlantic Canada manufacturers, stakeholders and ACOA representatives attended the 2½ day event, along with their manufacturing peers from across the country. The Future of Manufacturing Industry Briefings will provide a forum to share what was learned (for both the delegation, as well as others who were not able to attend the conference), discuss the challenges and opportunities, as well as next steps and resources supporting local manufacturers in these critical areas.
