Manufacturing Day℠ is a celebration of modern manufacturing meant to inspire the next generation of manufacturers. Although Manufacturing Day officially occurs on the first Friday in October — this year is it occurs on October 6, 2017 — any day can be Manufacturing Day!

Public Tours &
Industry Breakfast

Today, Manufacturing involves so much more than the assembly line. Manufacturing is all about skills. There is a place for everyone in Manufacturing, whether that is in Design, Engineering/Technical or Sales. Manufacturing careers are among the most promising out there.

Get a true first impression of manufacturing and learn what it is all about through MFG DAY.

Pre-registration is required for all tours. Seating is limited on all tours so please ensure that you are able to make a tour if you book to attend one.

Tours are taking place across Waterloo Region, Guelph/Wellington and Dufferin County.

Manufacturing Day is being kicked off with a breakfast and a tour of ATS Automation in Cambridge.
