Construction and Manufacturing

Manufacturing is a critical component of Canada’s economy. The production, sale and distribution of finished products contribute to consumer and labour markets, and secure Canada’s position as an economic leader among developed nations. Major, medium-sized and small manufacturers produce goods used by Canadians and contribute to the revenue gained from the export of goods to other countries. Since the early 2000s, the manufacturing sector in Canada has declined significantly in response to changes in the global economy and fewer regulatory controls over Canadian products (see Free Trade; Globalization). The composition and structure of the Canadian manufacturing industry is transitioning in response to these changes, aiming to produce new goods that are in greater demand.

Automotive Industry

The Automotive industry produces light duty vehicles (cars, vans, pickup trucks) and heavy duty vehicles (trucks, transit buses, school buses, military vehicles), in addition to a wide range components parts and systems integrated within the structural frame and body of a vehicle. To complement its manufacturing activities, the industry boasts a well-developed vehicle dealer network, plus an aftermarket organization which has grown into a world-class distribution system and service provider.

The Automotive industry is:

  • Integrated into NAFTA (i.e. Canada, U.S., Mexico)
  • Globally competitive
  • The eighth largest in the world with positive trade balance
  • A major contributor to the economy, employing over half a million people

Aerospace

The aerospace industry includes the development and production of aircraft, satellites, rockets and their component parts. Aerospace is a major component of Canada’s economy, employs tens of thousands of Canadians, and accounts for a large part of Canadian trade with foreign markets. Canada boasts a diverse aerospace sector and is one of just a few countries that produce airplanes. Through close partnership with the United States space agency, the National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA), Canada has also launched satellites as well as built sophisticated components used on the International Space Station.

Canadian aerospace firms have a well-deserved reputation for quality, value, performance and reliability. They are recognized by customers around the world for delivering leading-edge and advanced technology solutions on time and at a competitive cost. Today, Canadian firms are suppliers of choice across a broad spectrum of civil aviation, defense and space programs.

Pulp and Paper

The pulp and paper industry consists of manufacturing enterprises that convert predominantly woody plant material into a wide variety of pulps, papers and paperboards. The Canadian industry began in the 1800s, and has undergone revolutionary changes over the years. Most recently, the move from newsprint to electronic media caused the industry to decline; however, pulp and paper remains a fundamental part of the Canadian economy, especially for remote and northern communities.

Understanding the Industry

Typically, paper has been made from “pulping” or crushing fibrous plant or woody material into its cellulose components using either friction or chemicals. During this process the waste, or non-cellulose material, is eliminated, as is the water, which is removed using heat and pressure, resulting in paper. The world’s first sheets were made in ancient Egypt by layering thinly-cut strips of papyrus plants at right angles (the word “paper” is derived from papyrus). However, the modern process of turning pulp into paper was born in China during roughly the earliest part of the Common Era. When knowledge of this enterprise migrated to Europe near the end of the first millennium, the raw material of choice for paper-making became animal skins and the product was called parchment paper. Its high cost spurred a search for a cheaper raw material, namely old cotton and linen rags. By the 19th century, trends in the Western World — including rising literacy rates and the proliferation of high-circulation newspapers — spurred a drive to find an even less expensive raw material, and wood was chosen. European (largely German) papermakers developed machines to break down logs from various tree species into pulps and also dry and flatten the pulps using a series of rollers that grew progressively larger and faster. This allowed for the mass production of many types of pulps and papers, of which newsprint was by far the least expensive. The former were turned into an ever-widening array of items, most importantly personal hygiene products such as tissues and toilet paper.

Foods and Beverage

Food and beverage processing or manufacturing is one of Canada’s major secondary industries and a vital component of the nation’s overall AGRIBUSINESS system.

Technology

The industry employs the most modern processing and packaging techniques. For example, thermal processing of foods and beverages in cans, glass and other forms of rigid packaging permits products to be stored at room temperature for several years without deterioration in product flavour or nutritional quality. Other methods of food preservation used in Canada include freezing, freeze-drying, drying, pasteurization, pickling and fermentation.

Canadian companies are often leaders in North America in introducing new processing and packaging methods. A recent example is the use of the retortable pouch (the so-called soft tin can) for the production of shelf-stable products. Aseptic packaging of milk and fruit juices in laminated (paper and plastic) containers, a technique developed in Europe, first appeared in Canada in 1965 and was well established by the late 1980s.

Metal Fabrication

Industrial Metal Fabrication has been instrumental in providing innovative solutions to meet the needs and process requirements in a wide variety of areas.

Applications include: pneumatic conveying, material separation, dust collection, industrial ventilation, and noise control systems as well as custom metal fabrication. Many years of experience are now being applied in the engineering and manufacturing of some of the most innovative, cost effective and high quality systems available today.

Cosmetics

Canada Cosmetics Products Market-Market Dynamics

The cosmetics industry remains more or less impervious to market ups and downs. Overall sales are indeed affected in the event of an economic downturn but one can count on sales of cosmetics to maintain a certain volume overall. This is because of the continuing and growing use of products by women, and increasingly by men across the world.

Drivers

Some of the factors driving the market include:

  • High disposable incomes
  • An inclination to spend on appearance
  • A large section of the world’s teens growing older and younger
  • A union of skin-benefiting and beautifying aspects in new makeup products through research into use of natural products
  • Continuing breakthrough research on products

Restraints

There are, however, some factors restraining the market. These include:

  • Tight purse strings
  • Lack of unpenetrated and potential markets
  • Falling value of Canadian dollar
  • Insufficient research into the prevalent trend of organic products
  • Inadequate regulation
