“I am pleased that the Toronto-Waterloo Corridor’s Advanced Manufacturing Supercluster bid has been selected as part of the Government of Canada’s Innovation Superclusters Initiative.
The Toronto Region is a growing centre of innovation and technology, and this federal initiative will help further accelerate the economic growth, job creation and talent attraction for which we are known. The Advanced Manufacturing Supercluster Strategy will build on our region’s overlapping strengths in manufacturing and technology, creating jobs and helping manufacturers across Canada become world leaders in the application of advanced technologies, from artificial intelligence to data security and robotics. It will support the creation of new tools, test beds and infrastructure to create the next generation of jobs and manufacturing, and will ensure that our region continues to develop the talent and technology necessary to draw investment and customers from around the world.
I thank all of the private- and public-sector partners from throughout the region who developed this successful bid, as well as Navdeep Bains, Canada’s Minister for Innovation, Science and Economic Development, for his leadership in investing in the future of the Canadian economy.”
