Canada's manufacturing and distribution industry is a cornerstone of our economy. To ensure this industry remains strong, the government has kept taxes low, reduced red tape and promoted trade abroad and skills training at home.

The world is changing, and new technologies are not just opening new markets for Canadian goods, they are changing the ways these goods are produced. A vibrant manufacturing community encourages industrial clusters that develop skills, knowledge and technology.  
The Government is working with its partners to increase support for and access to skills training initiatives, including those that benefit skills development for the manufacturing sector, such as the Apprenticeship Job Creation Tax Credit, Apprenticeship Incentive Grant, Apprenticeship Completion Grant and the Canada Apprentice Loan.
