Manufacturing Day

Click here to register for a tour of a manufacturer in your area

Manufacturing Day (MFG Day) is an annual event which connects local manufacturers to students and jobseekers in the local Waterloo-Wellington-Dufferin Region. Students and jobseekers get to tour facilities and see the opportunities a career in manufacturing can provide. They get a chance to ask questions and meet people who work in the industry everyday.

MFG Day is celebrated across North America and local events are lead by the Workforce Planning Board with the support of local manufacturers, partners and sponsors.

MFG Day 2018 will be held on October 5th. We will provide more details as they become available. 

If you are a manufacturer and you would like to take part in the 2018 event please contact Shawn at 519 622 7122 or shawn@workforceplanningboard.com
