TrilliumGIS is an open-access asset and capability-mapping platform that provides information for over 8,000 manufacturing establishments that represent over 95% of Ontario manufacturing employment and output. TrilliumGIS is free for you to use and relies exclusively on publicly-available information compiled and analyzed by Trillium staff, often with feedback from network partners.
TrilliumGIS provides you with information that identifies companies in the different manufacturing segments, and shares their location and capabilities. You can use this platform to:
- Get information about Ontario’s manufacturing capabilities and supply chains for potential investment opportunities
- Connect with potential suppliers and/or companies to supply
- Discover some potential R&D and work-integrated learning partners
- Find out about prospective employers and employment opportunities
Anyone who values information about manufacturing establishments in Ontario can benefit from using TrilliumGIS. Our intended users include provincial and federal government agencies, municipal economic development offices, industry associations, site selectors, manufacturers, education and research institutions, and job-seekers.
Here’s how you can get started:
WHAT KIND OF INFORMATION IS AVAILABLE THROUGH TRILLIUMGIS?
You can search and filter information about manufacturing establishments by company name, NAICS code, location, products, and industries served.
DO YOU COLLECT OTHER DATA ABOUT MANUFACTURING ESTABLISHMENTS?
Yes we do. We compile information about company ownership, location, employment, production, capabilities, capacity, industries served, customers, investment, and establishment/company history. For access to this information, all of which is compiled from publicly-available sources, please contact us at email@example.com.
WHAT ARE NAICS CODES?
NAICS stands for North American Industrial Classification System. NAICS codes are used by North American governments to classify business establishments. For details about the NAICS codes used in Canada, visit Statistics Canada at: https://www23.statcan.gc.ca/imdb/p3VD.pl?Function=getVD&TVD=380372.
HOW DO THE FILTERS WORK?
The industry filters allow you to identify manufacturers that supply or contribute to a particular production network or supply chain. For example, if you selected ‘Automotive’, you would be able to identify a network of several hundred vehicle assemblers, automotive parts manufacturers, automation and tooling manufacturers, and other manufacturers that are involved in the automotive industry.
The filters also allow you to identify manufacturers that supply or contribute to more than one industry. In addition to identifying manufacturers that contribute to an individual production network or supply chain, there are two additional filters available here: ‘OR’ and ‘AND’.
The ‘OR’ filter allows you to identify all of the companies that contribute to the two or more industries that you have selected. If you select ‘Aerospace’ OR ‘Automotive’, you will see all of the companies that contribute to Ontario’s aerospace and automotive industries. This would include companies that contribute to the aerospace industry but not the automotive industry, and vice-versa.
The ‘AND’ filter allows you to identify companies that contribute to all of the filters selected. If you select ‘Aerospace’ AND ‘Automotive’, you will see only companies that supply both the aerospace and automotive industries. The ‘AND’ filter is especially useful to identify the industries served by manufacturers from the ‘Automation and Tooling’ industry.
The ‘COVID-19 Pivot Company’ filter allows you to identify manufacturers that transformed a portion of their operations to produce personal protective equipment (PPE) and medical supplies in the wake of the COVID-19 pandemic.
The ‘Trillium Profiled Company’ filter identifies manufacturers profiled by the Trillium Network. You can access these company profiles through TrilliumGIS. If you are interested in taking part in our company profiling initiative, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
