Manufacturing employs about 1.7 million Canadians – just under 10 per cent of the Canadian workforce. In fact, the largest employer of all Canadian manufacturing is the food and beverage manufacturing sector, making it an even bigger employer than the auto manufacturing.
The world of manufacturing has undergone dramatic changes over the past several decades. As a result, the public perception of Canadian manufacturing bears little resemblance to the reality. Nothing could be further from the truth. Manufacturing is a vital contributor to the Canadian economy, and to the living standards of all Canadians. It is, in fact, the most important economic sector in the country, accounting for two thirds of Canada’s exports and 42 per cent of all research and development. It is the lynchpin of the Canadian economy.
