— Manufacturing jobs at highest level since 2008 —
TORONTO — Vic Fedeli, Minister of Economic Development, Job Creation and Trade, issued the following statement on today’s monthly employment release by Statistics Canada, which showed that while jobs in Ontario decreased in July 2023, the manufacturing sector saw an increase of 7,800 jobs.
“At a time of global uncertainty, our government is working hard to build our manufacturing sectors and create more good-paying jobs for people across the province.
Last month, we added more than 7,800 manufacturing jobs to our economy — more than all 50 U.S. states combined. Manufacturing employment in Ontario is now over 820,000, the highest it has been since December 2008.
We’re training a world-class workforce to attract new investments and jobs, cutting red tape and working with our partners around the world to build a resilient economy.
