Report on Skills Issues in the Manufacturing Sector (2003)

Canadian Manufacturers and Exporters (CME) is a national, non-partisan organization dedicated to promoting and preserving the interests of Canadian manufacturers and exporters.

In this report, CME research shows that a skills gap is looming in the manufacturing sector in Newfoundland and Labrador, education infrastructure required to bridge the gap is limited, an inadequate match between labour market demand and supply exists, and gatekeepers need to be educated on the real opportunities in the manufacturing and industrial sectors. The skills gap is also more readily apparent in rural areas of the province as the competition for its labour pool is provincial, national, and international. Skills are a critical resource for a healthy economy, but the people holding those skills are also essential to maintain our community and social networks.
