Manufacturing Matters


Are you concerned about the loss of manufacturing jobs?  Would you like to kick start a campaign in your area or bring fresh ideas to an axisting campaign?  If so then this program is for you!

This is a one of a kind, flexible program that allows local leadership to choose four workshops from a list of six choices (see blow) that are designed to provide concrete skills and inspire creative action in our fight to keep manufacturing jobs in Canada.  Contact the Education Department for more information.
