Why Choose Ontario
For Advanced Manufacturing

A fusing of traditional and high-tech manufacturing methods across key sectors
Ontario is the epicentre of Advanced Manufacturing in Canada. It seamlessly combines traditional manufacturing methods with the latest technology. The top manufacturing sectors calling Ontario home include Aerospace, Automotive, Chemical and Biochemical and CleanTech.
Most importantly, Ontario is the base for Canada’s Advanced Manufacturing Cluster led by the non-profit NGen. Companies situated in Ontario can benefit from this because 62% of the Advanced Manufacturing cluster’s project partners are located in Ontario.
In their recent report, NGen revealed that between 2021-2022, they granted CA $81.4 million in funding for 75 Advanced Manufacturing projects. This brings NGen's overall project funding approvals to CA $235.9 million, spread across 166 projects, and total investments reaching CA $607 million.

New manufacturing processes are the top recipient of NGen funding by type of solution, and Pharmaceuticals, Food Processing, and Advanced Materials are the top funding receipts by sector.

3 out of 7 of Canada’s established Advanced Manufacturing hubs are in Ontario – Toronto, Waterloo, and Ottawa.

  • Toronto is a prominent research hub in the advanced manufacturing sector. The city has one of North America’s highest concentrations of engineers and STEM professionals, along with the nation’s second largest aerospace cluster. Toronto is a leader in automotive, robotics research, and Advanced Manufacturing events.
  • Waterloo is a thriving tech hub in Ontario. With 1,850+ manufacturing companies and prestigious academic institutions providing a qualified talent pool, it has made its mark as Canada’s largest robotics and automation cluster.
  • Ottawa is another leader in Advanced Manufacturing, especially in aerospace, defence, and engineering. The city’s top-ranked STEM institutions attract top talent. Area X.O, operated by Invest Ottawa, offers a cutting-edge space for testing future mobility and connected technologies.
  • Brampton is an emerging hotspot for Advanced Manufacturing in Ontario. Advanced Manufacturing is the largest industry by employment, accounting for almost a quarter or 16% of Brampton’s workforce.
In Ontario, your business gains access to the highest-educated workforce of the G7. Ontario is also the second largest tech cluster in North America and hosts a concentration of world-class universities that are preparing the future workforce to excel in Advanced Manufacturing.

The most noteworthy collaboration is Ontario’s Advanced Manufacturing Consortium (AMC), a strategic partnership between McMaster University, the University of Waterloo, and Western University, to provide easy access to facilities and technical expertise required by innovative manufacturing startups.

Carleton University, University of Ottawa, Conestoga College, Wilfrid Laurier University, Durham College, Ontario Tech University, Ryerson University, Sheridan College, University of Toronto, and York University are some other renowned universities in Ontario offering post-secondary courses and degrees relevant to Advanced Manufacturing.

Canada’s trade agreements cover markets valued at over US $50 trillion with 1.7 billion consumers. Canada has free trade agreements with the largest manufacturing markets in the world: the United States (USMCA), the European Union (CETA) and Asia-Pacific (CPTPP).

Your business can access 187 million consumers within a day’s drive of the Greater Toronto Area. Ontario has 4 international and 300 regional airports, 250,000 km of roads and highways, a dozen border crossings and the 6th most internationally connected airport in the world.
