Since 1871, Canadian Manufacturers & Exporters have been the voice of industry in Canada.

Our strength has been and continues to be the member companies for which we exist to serve; manufacturing and exporting firms.

For those firms, the latest economic data reflects the impact of their company's success but also paints a picture of what opportunities and barriers to growth exist.
