Trillium Network Launches Advanced Manufacturing Data Bulletin Series
Data Bulletins Provide Insight into Ontario’s Advanced Manufacturing Ecosystem
Beginning in January 2022, the Trillium Network for Advanced Manufacturing will publish monthly Data Bulletins that provide insight into important topics related to Ontario’s advanced manufacturing ecosystem. These topics include, but are not limited to, the manufacturing workforce, trade, technological adoption, and industry structure. These bulletins draw upon publicly available information and from the Trillium Network’s database of more than 10,000 Ontario manufacturers.
Data Bulletin 4 – April 2022
Employment Change, Plant Size, & Production Concentration in Ontario

Canadian Manufacturing & Trade Dependence
Over the past few years, international trade has been disrupted by issues like the COVID-19 pandemic, shipping costs, protectionism, climate change, and most recently, the conflict in the Ukraine. For many manufacturers in Canada, international trade is vital. But different industries are integrated into the international economy differently. This data bulletin provides initial insight into these relationships on an industry-by-industry basis.
