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. 


Workplace Safety & Prevention Services

The WSPS 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.


The Ontario 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.
