Canadian Manufacturing Coalition
The CMC is chaired by Dr. Jayson
Myers, President and CEO, Canadian Manufacturing &Exporters. The
coalition continues to grow and now represents 51 associations from
a variety of industry sectors with members from across Canada. The
Canadian Foundry Association is a member of the CMC and provides a
voice and representation of the foundry sector.
The focus continues to be to develop and support
policy and regulatory initiatives aimed at improving
competitiveness, growth and investment in Canada’s manufacturing
industries with a common voice. CMC has been instrumental in
affecting policies in support of manufacturing because we work
effectively together and speak where possible with a common voice.
By leveraging our strengths we will continue to make Canada a better
place for our members to do business.
Coalition of Ontario Manufacturers for Competitive
Industrial Power Rates
The Coalitions represents a group of manufacturing
associations that have come together to work on a common concern: High
Electricity Rates. For
many energy-intensive manufacturers, high electricity rates have
become a barrier to reinvestment in Ontario. The Coalition believes
the high rates have weakened the province’s competitive position and
narrowed its economic base. Ontario is losing its manufacturing
base to other jurisdictions that can offer a better investment
climate and one that includes lower electricity rates.
The Coalition continues working with all three
political parties in an effort to push forward its agenda.
Workplace Safety & Prevention Services
provides industry-specific health and safety products, training and
consulting services. The Canadian Foundry Association’s Health and
Safety Program and Annual Safety Awards for foundries and suppliers
across Canada is a collaboration with the Workplace Safety &
Prevention Services. The WSPS has the expertise and resources and
also holds webinars, network and knowledge exchanges on various
topics and keeps the CFA informed of MOL issues and programs.
Ministry of Labour Prevention Council is comprised of
representatives from labour, non-union workers, employers, an
occupational health and safety expert and the WSIB. This is an
important milestone for Ontario’s occupational health and safety
system and the WSPS is involved with the Council.
