September 9, 2019 Wendy GrayIndustry News and Events 83 Views

On behalf of Excellence in Manufacturing Consortium (EMC), we invite you to participate in our ManufacturingGPS Labour Market Intelligence (LMI) initiative!

EMC’s ManufacturingGPS initiative is funded by the Government of Canada's Sectoral Initiatives Program and is seeking manufacturing employer's input in the Employer Survey.  We are currently engaging manufacturing employers across the country and encouraging participation. By participating, you can benchmark your company against industry averages and make a contribution by providing local LMI in your region. Growing LMI in your region and across Canada allows for the development of new workplace solutions and helps to create and maintain jobs in manufacturing.

ManufacturingGPS is powered by data from over 2,500 Canadian manufacturers, which is by far the largest pool of manufacturing LMI data of its kind in Canada. These manufacturers represent sub-sectors, all provinces and key manufacturing regions.  ManufacturingGPS is a fully searchable, online Labour Market Intelligence (LMI) system - tracking key workforce trends and occupational intelligence, providing critical information needed to help grow productivity and build competitiveness.

By completing this survey, you will have access to ManufacturingGPS benchmarking reports and resources, available online for your review and use – FREE OF CHARGE.  These dynamic reports can provide you with the ability to zero in on 80+ key occupations in 14 different sub-sectors, in real time.  You can customize your benchmarking reports with filters available at the national, provincial and regional levels, as well as by sub-sector.  You can also access key Educator data (100+ educators/post secondary institutions) on LMI supply, including program information and expected graduates in your area.

To get involved, all you have to do is participate in the Employer Survey using the following options:

  • You can complete the Survey online. Visit here to register and participate.
  • Additionally, MDB Insight, an independent consultant, has been contracted to assist EMC with collecting data and are reaching out to Canadian manufacturers to assist with participation. Should you wish to participate by phone, please contact me and I will coordinate the call for you.

Upon completion, you will have immediate access to all LMI benchmarking reports and resources!

We look forward to your participation in this great initiative!

If you require further information, please contact me at, or call 1-866-323-4362 and I would be glad to discuss this great initiative further with you!
