Ontario is a world leader in manufacturing. Nineteen per cent of Ontario's jobs are in the manufacturing sector, and its revenue accounts for one-quarter of the province's wealth.
Precision machining, tooling trades, and millwrighting are the backbone of modern manufacturing. Skilled workers build machines and components used in making all kinds of industrial and consumer products, ranging from plastic containers to airplane parts. Millwrights ensure the entire production system of a plant is running efficiently.
