2014 Canadian Urban Manufacturing Summit
Canada's only national conference dedicated to retaining and reviving Canada's manufacturing capacity will take place May 7-8, 2014, at the Sheraton Hamilton Hotel, Hamilton, Ont.
Tim Hudak, MPP, Niagara West-Glanbrook, and leader of the Ontario PC Party, will deliver the keynote address on government’s role in leading and fostering a strong manufacturing sector.
