Everyday Benefits & Savings for Manufacturers

Strategic partnerships

The NMA connects members to specialized manufacturing training, funding, export development programs and other operational resources.


The NMA meets regularly with representatives from all levels of government - federal, provincial, and municipal - to express the concerns of local manufacturers and to foster support for industry. See Advocacy…

Energy Coalition

The NMA through our participation in the Energy Coalition, actively works on Energy cost and supply issues on behalf of our members. See Energy Coalition…

Training & Workforce Development

The NMA diligently works to help its members bring down the costs of training and we do this by collaboration. Why train only one member, when we can train a few and everyone saves time and money. The NMA will negotiate and organize training such as Forklift/Working from Heights/First Aid as a collaborative group – saves the member time and money.
