The Canadian manufacturing industry is on a strong growth path and constitutes about 10% of the country's GDP. Manufacturers export more than $354 billion each year which represents about 68% of Canadian merchandise exports. The industry employs more than 1.7 million full-time jobs.
With modernization, manufacturing companies are becoming innovative and high-tech; relying on a skilled and knowledgeable workforce. Global 'hyper-competitive' markets are held to an international ISO standard, with a highly-trained, knowledgeable workforce becoming a top-tier priority for the success of manufacturers, who are committed to innovation and world-class products and service delivery. Offshore manufacturing in countries like India, China and Mexico has become significantly more expensive in recent years with the onset of labour cost increases, sub-standard quality control and the emergence of a growing middle-class in historically 'under-developed' countries.
The manufacturing industry has enjoyed a local resurgence of small and mid-size producers across almost 100% of product and service industries. New growth industry sectors such as 'Craft' brewers have played a significant role in adding to the skilled-trades shortage; utilizing high percentages of their workforce from the skilled trades. All, are adding pressure on a sector of the North American workforce that has already been on a decline for the last 30 years. The extreme shortage of a skilled-trades workforce has driven a compensation correction to this much-needed sector, thereby causing businesses to locate alternate areas to locate savings and protect their profit margins.
