Manufacturing Month raises the profile of our industry as highlighted in government (with proclamations and the inclusion of Manufacturing as one of four areas of strategic importance in the BC Jobs Plan) and among job seekers and the public. Once again, CME BC will join forces with our partners – Alliance for Manufacturing in BC, Chambers of Commerce, Boards of Trade, BC manufacturing companies and educational institutions to organize plant tours, the BC Manufacturers’ Hall of Fame and other events. These serve to showcase the innovative manufacturing that happens in BC.
Extending our Reach
This year we are actively working on events in regions such as Victoria, Nanaimo, Prince George and Kelowna to showcase a diverse group of manufacturers throughout the province of BC.
