The Celebration of Manufacturing reception on Monday evening, was a great success as Coalition members were able to network with the Hon. Navdeep Bains, Minister of Innovation, Science and Economic Development and more than 30 other Members of Parliament. In addition to the reception, the Coalition’s Manufacturing Day on the Hill held the following day on Tuesday was also a great success. In total, representatives of the Coalition and manufacturing executives met this week with 98 MPs and senior government representatives, including 2 Ministers, 8 Parliamentary Secretaries, 11 Chairs of Parliamentary Committees, 20 Critics and Deputy Critics from the Conservative Party and NDP, 3 Party Leaders and 1 Deputy Whip. Jean-Francois Champagne and Jason Kerr participated in 10 of these meetings throughout the day providing the opportunity to not only promote AIA, but also to actively engage MPs on priority issues related to manufacturing in Canada.
Great to meet Jason Kerr, Nadege Adam and David Bisson to talk about the future manufacturing in Canada #mfgourfuture
