On this episode of Making it in Ontario, Nick speaks with attendees of the APMA’s 69th Annual Conference in Vaughan.

The conference is one the premier advanced manufacturing networking events in Ontario, and features senior government officials and industry leaders from Canada, the United States, the EU, and Asia.

Throughout the episode, Nick’s conversations focus on a range of themes related to the automotive industry and advanced manufacturing, including Industry 4.0, cybersecurity, and workforce diversity. In this episode we also learn about the exciting work happening at Ontario Tech University’s Automotive Centre of Excellence (ACE), including their Climatic Aerodynamic Wind Tunnel and role in the APMA’s Project Arrow.
